Its bad enough we coddle stupid people but to coddle stupid animals takes the prize..
Not only that i would imagine its probably not a good idea to interfere with it either. If instinct doesnt provide for survival it should not be altered to be dependant on an outside means.

When we moved to Brevard Co. Fl. in 1990, the $TM club was just coming onto the Manatee scene in a big way. They came to Brevard co. and said that the power plants warm water discharges were BAD for the manatee,(DUH!) because it disrupts their natural migration pattern, (South to the Caribbean for the winter). Fast forward 10 years, and the $TM are the ones who SUED the state of Fl./FPL and WON to have the heaters installed, what a flip/flop.
It's the $TM Club that's the major problem, bunch of POS's and liars!

there is a sign at the boat launch in my neighborhood warning about manatees, there is also one somewhere else but I can't remember where...asked the wildlife and fisheries officer this year about it and he had no clue! I'll take a pic next time I'm down there and post it here. I want to take it down and put the sign in my boat slip at the camp

LA,
I think I owe you an apology, I meant to say, I hope they NEVER make it to your waterways, sorry about that, I probobly sounded like a d!ck.

So here is the latest manatee news

http://www.floridatoday.com/article/...illing+sea+cow


BTW, we live off Sykes Creek, and I blow thru those manatee zones every chance I get! I got to keep a better eye out for the Tree huggers on shore who call in the Speeders!

Do you still have to idle with jet drive boats and PWC's? I suspect you do, just had to ask.

Yep,
It doesn't matter what type of propulsion system you have.... The main KILLERS of manatees are the BIG commericial Tugs and the barges they push, Manatees can't hear them coming and they get crushed or mauled by the HUGE props that are on the Tugs.

Here's the follow-up article in the paper this morning.
