Dave Bautista Offers $20k in Case of Manatee Scraped with Word “Trump”

Actor and wrestler Dave Bautista is adding to an already existing reward for information on someone who scraped the word “Trump” onto a manatee.

The manatee was discovered in Florida on January 10 with the word scrawled onto its back.

Bautista is adding $20,000 to the already existing $5,000, but says that there “will be bonuses to that reward!”

Florida manatees are protected by the Endangered Species Act and harassing one is considered to be a federal crime.

What do you think should happen to the person who scraped the word onto the manatee? Do you think the person will be caught?
