Ride the walrus!

Unfortunately, in Florida, it’s illegal to ride manatees and one resident is about the learn that the hard way.

Pinellas County sheriffs are on the hunt for a woman who thought it would be cool to ride a manatee while on the beach.

This is a second degree misdemeanor and a big no-no.

Thankfully, the hunt was short lived as 52 year old Ana Gloria Garcia Gutierrez turned herself over to police.

The Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act that “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.”

Looks like she learned her lesson.
