CLEARWATER, Fla. - Clearwater Police Officers were dispatched to the east side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway around 6pm after receiving numerous reports of multiple beached manatees.
Upon arrival, Officers contacted the Clearwater Marine Aquarium who dispatched emergency personnel to the scene.
As it turned out, the 8 to 10 manatees were mating in the shallow water.
Several dozen people stopped and parked along the Causeway to watch, and police had to use crime scene tape to protect the sea cows from people trying to enter the water.
The jury in Jodi Arias' murder trial has been dismissed after failing to decide if she should receive the death penalty.
