Catching a ride

Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law but it is close to stupidity.  Who in their right mind would hop on the back of an endangered manatee and go for a ride?  Why would one think it is okay to jump on a poor defenseless critter and ride the waves.  A 52 year old woman from St. Petersburg did just that and she has no excuse as she is a tourist.  She lives in Florida.  Everyone knows about the manatees and if they don't they must live in a cave without any communication from the real world. 
I really hope this slightly screwy individual gets a hefty fine.  Make her do community service and give something back to the community instead of plain stupidity. 
Riding a manatee like it was some type of mechanical bull in a bar - hello.......
