Several years ago I was swimming early one morning off Florida’s Anna Maria Island and a manatee glided up to me. I backed off to give it room and we eyed up each other (me in swimming googles) from around 15 ft. It swam off to observe some children and then quietly swam away. I felt so privileged.
Manatees are beautiful and worthy of our attention and care. I’m with the wildlife biologist with this one.

This just makes me want to cry for that poor animal. And also for the state of our country that there are actually people that exist in this world, that would do this to a helpless, sweet being.

I love animals. When I saw this, I honest to god felt sick and I feel sick again thinking about the poor baby and how evil someone would have to be to do this. That poor Manatee 🙁
I hate Trump and his supporters.

I have my BS in Wildlife Biology as well, and am similarly disgusted. I just cannot believe people. I saw this on IG the other day and shared it; I follow a few wildlife/rescue/ocean accounts. I just don’t understand.

when I saw this I didn’t think it was Trump supporters. I thought it was someone who hated Trump, who has been compared to various fat animals.
Either way, disgusting and I’m confident that they will be caught.
