Inquirer & Mirror: Although the International Fund for Animal Welfare has yet to see the manatee that has been spotted around Cape Cod for the past 2 weekends, it has confirmed sightings off Dowses Beach in Osterville and Oyster Pond in Chatham after receiving photographs and videos of the marine mammal.

The earliest unconfirmed reports of the manatee came last week when it was spotted off Nantucket, before it was seen off Dowses over the weekend, said Misty Niemeyer, a necropsy coordinator and marine mammal rescue and research member with IFAW.
