Manatees Are Dying In Droves, Florida Says 'Too Bad'

'Red tide' and a loss of sea grass account for some manatee deaths, but researchers believe undiscovered factors are also at play.

Noted. Oh, Florida, you're really missing the boat. You brought them back and now the death rates are the greatest ever?! Does the NRA have an opinion on manatees? The Tea Party? If you won't feed your hungry, care for your homeless, tend to your sick, take care of your immigrants, surely you can at least not kill off your manatees.

It makes me super angry when I hear about a Manatee (a gentle giant) being run over by a barbaric moron that was in a rush to go no WHERE!!

noted on 5-3-13 so now we have endangered mammals dying in large numbers and all the state of florida can say is too bad not only is this inhumane but how can anyone just turn a blind eye and not want to help save our endangered wildlife believe me if it was something that they really cared about they would be screaming bloody murder and asking for help that state is nothing but a joke no wonder they have so many problems.

Sadly noted - I hope those rich fools with their toys also can find it in their hearts to recognize what they're doing on their boats!
