Officials: Man cited for taking federally protected coral



KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a North Carolina man visiting the Florida Keys stole large pieces of federally protected coral. The Miami Herald reports that Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers responded Wednesday night to a Key Largo condominium complex and issued the man a notice to appear in court for violating the Endangered Species Act. FWC investigators had been tipped off that someone had coral out on a balcony at the Landings of Largo. Officers identified it as staghorn coral. The man told officers he was in the Keys for the two-day lobster miniseason, which ended Thursday night.
