Manatee rescued off Cape Cod released after rehab

A manatee has been sent south after an incredible rescue off the coast of Cape Cod.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare saved the enormous manatee when it got stuck in an inlet.

The animal weighs more than 1,000 pounds.

Crews brought it to a rehab aquarium in Connecticut before sending it to warmer waters in Florida.
