To the editor:
I just read Carolyn Ten Broeck’s article about lining up to pet Manatees. I would like you to inform Ms. Ten Broeck that this behavior of petting Manatees is not one of love, but negligence.
I have a friend that is a vendor in the Kings Bay area and she has told me about visitors harassing the animals, often with more boaters on the waters than manatees who are there seeking refuge from the cold. Even touching a manatee should be avoided at all times.
