It’s making me incredibly sad to have to report this, but humans have once again proved that we are the worst thing that ever happened to this planet.
Florida’s wildlife authorities are currently investigating how a poor, sweet wild manatee was found in local waterways with the letters ‘T R U M P’ scraped into its back.
Sighted in Florida’s Gulf Coast, people have shared footage of the poor poor creature.
Can this even be real? A manatee was discovered in Florida with the word “Trump” scraped on its back. pic.twitter.com/PH8YcmGRnz

People are attempting to understand whether the letters have been scraped into just the algae or fur on the creature or whether it punctured its skin.
Does it matter? The animal has been abused by a slow thinking human for the sake of entertainment and poor thinking skills.

The Wildlife Service put it to rest, clarifying that they believe the skin was not hurt and it looked superficial.
The Centre for Biological Diversity is offering $5, 000 USD for any information that can lead to the conviction of the person responsible for harming the gentle animal, which is a federal offence in the USA.
Harassment of a manatee is a federal criminal offense punishable by a $50,000 fine and up to one year in prison.
Call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation hotline at (888) 404-3922 with any info. https://t.co/oGqhBOywHA
