Search continues for Phil the manatee

   MIAMI, March 12 (UPI) -- Phil the manatee (Wednesday) continues to
elude local rescue workers who are afraid that as the young animal grows
the wire accidentally wrapped around his body will squeeze him to death.
The Miami Seaquarium tourist attraction has asked the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection to help find the manatee who has been
swimming in Biscayne Bay south of Miami but may soon head north for the
summer and be lost.
