    The pix is tasteful and from a distance.

    Florida Manatee Orgy Near Tampa Bay Highway Causes World's Most Awkward Traffic Jam
    You'd think Floridians would be unfazed by odd things happening around them on a constant basis, but then again, you don't see this every day.

    An unusual congregation of mating manatees reportedly caused a traffic jam in Tampa Bay, Florida last Friday.

    Approximately a dozen of the creatures were spotted by commuters offshore of Courtney Campbell Causeway, reports Fox 13. The news channel says it received several calls from drivers commuting via the road—many of whom pulled over to watch the spectacle—reporting a possible whale in distress. On arrival, a news helicopter discovered the herd of manatees engaging in a rarely seen reproduction practice known as a "mating ball."

    This event, which ABC Action News reports is sighted an average of once every three to five years, is a result of a highly competitive manatee mating ritual, wherein an average of seven males reportedly compete for the attention of a single female. This sometimes results in a group of aggressive males corralling a small number of females into shallow waters, before attempting to mate with them.

    Though distasteful, this practice may prevent manatees from slipping back toward extinction, as the size of their wild population is limited. Manatees were classified as endangered for more than 40 years, until their reclassification in 2016 to the less-severe status of "threatened," implying population numbers greater than those of endangered species.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says that manatee mating season runs from March through November, meaning more traffic slowdowns could occur in the rare event that another manatee mating ball appears off the coast of Tampa Bay.

    VERO BEACH – Warrants went out for four people last week after witnesses say they were having sex in a grassy area of a parking lot across from the Blue Agave restaurant in Vero Beach.

    Videos surfaced on Snapchat and Facebook showing the two couples having sex in the afternoon on 14th Avenue.

    The Vero Beach Police Department received calls about the four homeless engaging in sexual activities as passersby watched in disbelief on Sunday, April 28th, at approximately 3:20 p.m.

    So far, only Myra Olin, 56, has been arrested on the warrant. Police are still looking for Francis Rhinehart, 57; Peter Jankowski Jr., 47; and Lisa Goldenberg, 52. All will be charged with disorderly conduct. All four individuals are homeless.

    Myra Olin, 56, was arrested Thursday night on a charge of disorderly conduct.

    Vero Beach Police said they arrived at the scene and saw each couple together. Olin told the officers that they “were just messing around.” Rhinehart and Goldenberg told officers they got “caught up in the moment.”

    A police spokesman said they typically do not get calls about people having sex openly in public.

    “This was pretty appalling of these people to be engaged in this type of activity,” Lt. John Pedersen said.

    I know right... now the animals are being distasteful when doing what nature calls them to do.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    That statement jumped at me, and I immediately read it to my wife....she shook her head, I read the comments and here we are.

    Appalling because the were homeless, grungy and older....

    Now if had been good looking 20 30 year olds, there would have been multiple videos on utube....

    I guess if you have to get arrested this would be a pleasant way cause it.

    Occasionally our Sheriff's Dept would get a call reporting that bulls were seen "raping" cows in some field. Some people have become really far removed from the natural.

    Thanks for the pix, vK.
    Are there any pix of the oldsters in MakesYouWonder's post?
    They were probably making the dogs bark and scaring the children.
    Would 'disorderly' be a better word than 'distasteful"?

    At least they’re doing it male to female, aren’t confused about the ins and outs, and have no intention of murdering their unborn offspring.

    Sometimes you make so much sense.

    Exactly! That's why I couldn't believe the "distasteful " comment. These Victorian snowflake throwbacks would faint if they saw a stallion and a mare getting it on! ROTFLMAO
