Daily Beast: U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials are investigating the assault of a manatee that had “TRUMP” etched into its back, the Citrus County Chronicle reported on Monday. The manatee was found in the Homosassa River, located on Florida’s west coast.
The rage I feel reading about this as a Floridian is indescribable. Below is a list of places where you can donate to support manatee research and rescue in my home state. https://t.co/MRGohjHRnA

Here is the video of the poor manatee that had "TRUMP" carved into its body.
Minding it's own business and some monster(s) came along and did this.

Manatees are protected under the Endangered Species Act, and harassment of a manatee is a federal crime, as Craig Cavanna, a Fish and Wildlife official, told the Chronicle. “This is very out of character for this community,” Cavanna told the Chronicle. “Wildlife conservation is a core value in Citrus County. That’s why it’s called the Nature Coast.”

These mouth breathers are sickening to do this to a harmless creature that is endangered.
I do hope that person(s) caught.
Craziness. That b@stard who did it deserves to have “Biden” curved on his forehead.
