USA: Florida manatee with ‘Trump’ etched on back prompts investigation.

WAV Comment: How low do people go ? – and these cretins think that a dipstick like Trump should be the President ? Roll on 20/1 and someone who respects wildlife and the environment.

US wildlife authorities have launched an investigation after a manatee was discovered with the word ‘Trump’ scraped on its back.

The marine mammal was spotted on Sunday in Florida’s Homosassa River, with the US president’s surname on its body.

Officials told AP news agency that the animal does not appear to be seriously injured, and the word was scraped onto algae growing on its skin.

But a video of the West Indian manatee has led to public outcry.

Manatees, nicknamed “sea cows,” are protected under US law, and anyone found guilty of harassing them faces up to a year in prison and a $50,000 (£37,000) fine.
