Sure, no one wants to visit one of Florida's beaches to find it littered with trash, but lately we think tourists might be more wary of getting their face bitten off than encountering garbage.
So while we're glad 20-year-old Keys resident Cassi Lyn Stanton was trying to keep her beach clean, we wish she would have found a better way to get her message across.
The incident happened March 5, according to KeysNet, when police were called regarding a brawl. Madison Pelfrey, a 21-year-old, had traveled from Stamford, Florida, and apparently wasn't disposing of her trash properly. So Stanton, a resident of Stock Island, confronted her and began yelling at her.
The argument escalated and quickly became physical. Stanton then bit Pelfrey's right cheek before the fight was broken up.
Thankfully, Pelfrey's face remained completely intact.

Stanton, meanwhile, was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges but was released.
Granted, the chances of getting your face eaten off in Florida are significantly lower than media coverage would have you believe, but it seems you can lower those chances further by not littering.
