WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) -

Waveland resident Russ Kern said he spotted a manatee on Monday around 11 a.m. near the seawall around the area of Buccaneer State Park in Bay St. Louis.

Kern said he was camping at the Hollywood Casino Monday and decided to walk over to the seawall.

"He just swam right up," Kern said. "I have never seen one before."

The manatee swam through a culvert under the roadway. It surfaced then went back through the culvert and back out to the Gulf of Mexico.

"He stuck his head up at me before he went up underneath the road. He looked straight at me. He seemed very calm, very docile," Kern said.
