Florida Men Cannonball Onto Manatees, Post It On YouTube

Thumbnail image for manatee deaths up.jpg
A couple of Cocoa Beach yokels made the conscious decision to lure a mother manatee and her calf close to the water's edge, and then cannonballed into them, because DERPY DERPY DERP IT'S HIGH LARIOUS. 

Then they posted the video of them slamming into the animals on the YouTube. 

Because this kind of stupid must be shared with all the internets!

But, because the internet reaches everyone, the Florida Fish and Wildlife's Internet crimes unit was able to track the video to its source after viewing it on Monday.

According to the FWC, two men have been ID'd, and investigators are considering filing charges against them, with a third also being questioned with his involvement in the stupid.

The video shows the men luring the two manatees over in a canal behind some homes, as one of them waits for the right moment to leap into the animals.

I wonder ir they will do the same with and alligator or a boa constrictor, they deserve punishment for not respecting the beauty of these passive animals. Please teach them a lesson

-everyone knows if you put a garden hose in the water the manatees will suck on it for a loooong time.  since its hard to get fresh water.  -fyi; banana river in coco is brackish.

Please file charges against these horrible idiots.  People who are cruel to endangered animals ought to be locked up.

Throw those two fucking idiots in the water and I'll jump on them. Let's see what a heel to the base of their redneck skulls does.
