Roommates, we have seen Trump supporters do some pretty strange things since he has been in office, but this might take the cake. Footage of a manatee in Florida’s Homosassa River has the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service upset, as it appears a Donnie supporter etched his last name onto its back.
According to TMZ, the Wildlife Service and the Center For Biological Diversity are offering $5,000 for any information regarding who may have scraped T-R-U-M-P into the algae growing on this manatee’s skin.
While officials say the manatee doesn’t appear to have been harmed, manatees are a protected species in Florida and it is against the law to harass them. In fact, breaking the law could land someone in prison for up to a year and a $50,000 fine.
Jaclyn Lopez, Director of the Center for Biological Diversity, says it’s disgusting that somebody would go out of their way to do something like this to a helpless creature, adding that the person is “capable of doing grave violence and needs to be apprehended immediately.”
It is unclear when the incident occurred, but federal authorities are asking anyone with information to call 888-404-3922.
Last week’s display made by Trump supporters at the Capitol has set a tone of violence leading up to Joe Biden’s inauguration, so it isn’t shocking the lengths people would go to show support for the man who will soon be leaving the White House.
Many people involved in the riot have been arrested and many officials have turned in letters of resignation. Articles of impeachment have even been brought against Trump, despite the fact that he has less than one week remaining in office.
Nevertheless, things are getting real, Roomies! Stay with us for all updates.
