Accused Manatee Molester Is on the Loose in St. Petersburg
Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies are asking the public to help them catch an accused manatee molester.
An unidentified woman is wanted for violating the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, which states that it is illegal for people to "intentionally or negligently" attempt to "molest, harass, or disturb any manatee."
According to several witnesses, the woman was seen riding a manatee in the water in the Gulf Pier around 1 p.m. Sunday. When the cops arrived, the woman was nowhere to be found.
I molest deh manatee, an' I dip.
Beachgoers snapped photos of the manatee molester before she disappeared.
