Craig Cavanna, senior federal wildlife officer and current investigating officer, told the Citrus County Chronicle that he can't comment on an ongoing inquiry.

But he did add: "It's been my experience that this is very out of character for this community. Wildlife conservation is a core value in Citrus County. That's why it's called the Nature Coast."

Cavanna said manatees are protected by the Endangered Species Act and interference in the animal can result in a fine of up to $50,000 fine and/or up to one-year in federal prison.

Manatees usually head along the Nature Coast around this time of year as they seek sanctuary in the waters along Citrus County's coastline.
