Authorities Hunt For The Woman Who Molested This Manatee

Have you seen this woman? Authorities are on the hunt for her after she was caught on film taking  a ride on a Manatee in Fort De Soto, Florida over the weekend. If apprehended, the mystery woman faces 2nd degree misdemeanor charges for violating the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, which clearly states, “It is unlawful for any person at any time, by any means, or in any manner intentionally or negligently to annoy, molest, harass, or disturb or attempt to molest, harass, or disturb any Manatee.”

First of all, I want an act like that passed for me! How great would that be? I wonder how the Manatee felt about the incident. He doesn’t seem to feel annoyed, harassed or molested. He seems to be having a fine time and authorities confirmed that the creature was not injured. While I respect Mantee rights, I understand why this woman would want to joy ride a Manatee. They’re awfully cute. And I’m slightly jealous. [WPTV]
