For a short period, yesterday, the hunt was on in Pinellas County, Florida for a lady photographed riding a manatee.
The sheriff's department called a deadly serious press conference in which they asked the help of the public in identifying the perpetrator. The lady was wearing a white cap, red shorts and a black bikini top. Witnesses in the area, the sheriff said in a statement, took photographs and contacted police.

In a special ongoing series, WFIT has been following the journey of a team of conservationists thru Florida.The Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition's mission is to connect natural and rural lands throughout the state, for the benefit of people and wildlife.
Along the first half of the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition fair and mild weather prevailed. Recently, as the expedition passed a halfway point on the 1000 mile route, a bout of strong winds and rain storms made an inclement presence.
