Environmental organization seeking information on swimmers seen riding a dying whale
Federal officials are looking for the two swimmers who were seen riding a dying whale in South Florida.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration asks anyone with more information to call their hotline 800-856-1964.
A Pompano Beach resident snapped a picture of one man riding the dying whale Sunday morning.
The swimmers could face a misdemeanor conviction of harassing a marine mammal, which carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a fine of up to $100,000.
