MIAMI — Wildlife officials are investigating two manatees found dead in the Miami River.

WSVN reports that the sea cows were discovered within hours of each other Friday near downtown Miami.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says experts are looking into the causes of the deaths and if they’re related. Marine biologists are transporting the remains to St. Petersburg for necropsies.
