Living on almost any canal in Florida means these things will beg for petting and grass trimmings at the sea wall. It's stupid how friendly they are. This of course leads to them getting injured and people getting in trouble.

i'm surprised the manatee stuck around with all that screaming!
they are sweet. we used to live on a canal here in florida and they would come right up to check us out on our dock. i was swimming in the water and they came up to me like they did with this girl... they felt HUGE next to me! i can see why she was scared, but still.... :)
Emily apparently they don't mind screaming. They are gentle giants.
