Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe there not even a native species.

We humans are pieces of crap for polluting the earth.
We humans are pieces of crap for creating litter that will kill them.
Animal minds do not develope like humans. That doesn't make them dumb. They lack the capacity in which God gave them. They were around long before Humans.

It saddens me to hear people say such things. I'm not self righteous. It sucks when people can be so careless and thoughtless. They can't help it. Us the pieces of crap can because we have the capacity.

Manatee They are on the pages of PowerBoat Mag,

Wasabe, while I respect your opinion, I wonder if you would feel the same way if they closed down most of the water areas around the OC to powerboats because of manatees invading where you live???

The problem to boaters is that manatees are attracted to the sounds of props and engine noises generated by boats. They swim toward your props almost instinctively. So laws to forces boaters to idle down coastline channels attracts these things in greater numbers. Why don't people get bent out of shape if a car hits a deer or runs over a possum? These things aren't meant to be in US waters anyways. Get some fishing boats to capture them and haul them back to the equator regions.
