Young males account for most of the world's dumb stunts, with older males responsible for most of the remainder.  But no demographic is completely immune.

If she went to Yellowstone, I wonder if she'd try to ride a bison?  Or pet a bear?  ???

You can't fix stupid.  I swam with them on the beach and kayaked with them many times. Saw many a prop scar on them too.   Everybody knows the boundries.  What a putz.

I'm guessing the manatee was the smarter mammal by a wide margin.

Uh-oh, maybe there's a thing I'm not aware of.  I hope to never see a similar picture of Cajun.  :laugh:

Don't worry - I was frightened enough when one was swimming right at my kayak!    Luckily, they are smart enough to duck under .. it was like they were playing with our boats.

This one swam right underneath me:

They are pretty cool. One bumped my kayak last February when I was paddling with Roger.  :)

That reminds me of a Jeep commercial I saw when I was a kid.  

I later had a Jeep CJ7, and yeah, it rode about like a buffalo...

This is the same as the "goat problem" in and around ONP, which is really a "people problem".  People think it is OK to approach and get close to these wild animals as if they are pets.  Wild animals should remain wild.

I hope they fine this woman because to ignore this would only encourage similar behavior.

I saw the picture and then read the story.

My first thought was, Oh, I see my ex found a "lady friend" while on vacation somewhere.
