Manatees are beautiful, gentle creatures and are protected by law.
So it's totally illegal to touch them, let alone ride them.
But that's exactly what happened on the north side of Siesta Key in Florida.
This isn't the first time someone has tried to ride a manatee either.
Not only is it bad for the manatees and dangerous for people, it's illegal too!
You can be fined $500 or even spend 60 days in jail!!
So if you're in Florida and you see manatees, make sure not to disturb them by staying at least 100 feet away!
Check out the video (above) to see some cruel people riding a manatee.
A happy ending to an initially heart breaking story!
A homeless man's dog was taken from him in the middle of the night in Hudson, Florida. The dog was a gift from the man's late wife who succumbed to cancer in 2011. She literally gave the dog to her husband so he would remember her.
After the heartbreaking story of the dog robbery grew some legs, friends of the homeless man, who's name is Bryan, helped set up a Facebook page to track Bryan's dog Handover down!
They even raised $1,000 for the reward money! And it totally worked!

Our only question is - what took so long?!
Here's what one of the assemblymen said in a statement about the new passed bills:
Honestly, this is just so sad and unfortunate.
Especially with how easily preventable this whole debacle could have been!
After being foolish enough to try to bring his pet Capuchin monkey, OG Mally, into Germany two months ago without the proper paperwork, Justin Bieber left the poor little guy there…and had until midnight yesterday to re-claim him before he became the country's property!
Now, the deadline has come and gone,
C'mon, Biebs, get that rear in gear!!
Justin Bieber literally only has a few hours left before his pet monkey Mally becomes property of Germany!
We previously mentioned that Justin's monkey was detained at German customs because he didn't have proper documents, but now, German officials are laying down the law and giving
This is absolutely disgusting!!
Some people just make us absolutely sick!
James Bryant is a homeless man who lost his wife to cancer in the beginning of 2011.
The last gift she gave to him was his dog, Handover.
She had hoped the dog would keep him company after he lost her.
After losing his wife and then his farm, Handover was literally all James had left.
Until Handover was stolen one night!! How terrible!!

When it comes to doing awesome legal things, Colorado is leading the way!
Many states have a specific breed of dog as their state dog, but not Colorado!
Colorado has made shelter pets their state pet!
