Hope they can get some help to the animal.

Damn fool Florida boaters -- look what they keep doing to the manatees in spite of all the warnings and publicity. Homo doofus at his best.

Another case of Human irresponsibility hurting our animal friends. People just do not realize that there actions have consequences. TIP: When you are done with a pack of soda or beer cut the plastic rings they came in. Marine life has been known to get tangled in them.
