Disabled manatee caught; it's a girl!

   MIAMI, March 14 (UPI) -- After two winters of trying, environmental
workers south of Miami have captured Phil the manatee and found out that
Phil is really Phyllis. Workers cut the female sea cow free of a loop of
synthetic cord that threatened to squeeze the life out of the 360-pound
manatee as she grew.
