People Keep Illegally Riding Manatees!!

| Filed under: Legal MattersAnimal CrueltyManatee

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.

Oh no! Poor manatees!

Off both of Florida's coasts almost 200 manatees have died due to a red tide!

A red tide is a bloom of algae where microorganisms build up and stain the ocean red, releasing toxins.

These toxins are harmful to fish, manatees and even people.

They attack the nervous system, causing short-term memory loss, paralysis, seizures and then death!!!
