The United States Fish and Wildlife Service is searching for information on the person or persons responsible for the harassment of a manatee discovered Sunday in the headwaters of the Homosassa River. The animal had the word “Trump” scraped into its back.

Craig Cavanna, senior federal wildlife officer, and current investigating officer said of the situation, “I cannot comment on a current, ongoing investigation.”

He added harassment of a manatee, protected by the Endangered Species Act, is a Class A federal criminal offense punishable by a $50,000 fine and/or up-to one-year in federal prison.
