   In Florida it's illegal to annoy, molest, harass, or disturb or attempt to molest, harass, or disturb a manatee. So having your picture taken while riding one is definitely frowned upon and can result in interaction with law enforcement

Her punishment should be that a giant blubbery manatee gets to come into her house and ride her around for a day, just jumping on her at random.

What a dumbass. I can't f*cking stand people like her. Do you really think that animal wanted to be your f*cking entertainment for the day, you clueless cow? Next time you wonder why some sign exists like "Don't Put Tongue in Electrical Socket," you will know it's because of this insufferable idiot.

Let's see.... woman ignorant of the law does harmless thing to a stupid animal and gets arrested at work and will have to spend untold $ to deal with it. Sounds fair.

Give me your address, next time I'm down there I'll pull one out of the water and eviscerate it on your doorstep. Then you can have something to be upset about.

Apparently, the bar for being "upset" for you is people you don't know posting on the internet.

It's not harmless and how clueless do you have to be to not know that harassing a wild animal isn't the right thing to do? Her arrest is completely fair and I hope it discourages other "hold my beer and look at me" idiots who can't simply enjoy nature without destroying it.

Tell you what, eviscerate yourself in the comfort of your own home and we'll call it even.

My mom's a tour guide at parks here in Fla. She told me of one new park opened here in Fla and the rangers allowed people to swim with the manatees but under certain conditions so as not to harm the creatures (e.g. no touching, no fins). She said that a good 10-20% of those allowed in the water were asked to leave because they simply could not follow easy to understand rules.

Manatees seem pretty awesome. They like to eat sea weed and chill and shiat. They're like the stoners of the sea.

If one swam up to me, I'd have a hard time keeping myself from petting it.

You sound angry, but really strong. Any idea what the average adult manatee weighs? Don't let all that pent up rage induce your mouth to write checks your rear end can't cash. just dragging it from your vehicle to the the doorstep would be a Herculaneum task. Don't post angry.

I'm not one to say repeat, but this story is relatively old yet I have seen it popping up on facebook and now here. Now, I never read Drew's book but doesn't it talk about how the media recycles bullshiat stories just as filler? Based on seeing people talk about this again, I think so..

It does, but it's because of idiots who think they are OMG SO EDGY AND TEH CLEVAR!!! by referring to [what they see as] their inevitable transport to some unpleasant place and their requests for certain seating arrangements therein. Declaring such a thing for oneself is ridiculous.

Manatees are playful... they will come up to you, rub up against you, roll over for you to rub their belly etc. It's tough not to reciprocate their longing for attention.
