Actor Dave Bautista Adds $20,000 To Reward For Case Of Manatee With ‘TRUMP’ Scraped On Back

Someone scraped the word 'TRUMP' into the back of a Nature Coast manatee, and now federal investigators are trying to figure out who did it.

Vice President Drax comes through! Dave Bautista of "Guardians of the Galaxy", "My Spy", etc was as disgusted as the rest of us, calling the person responsible "a low life scummy MAGAT."

(AP) - “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor Dave Bautista is offering a $20,000 reward to catch whoever etched “Trump” into a Florida manatee’s back.

A video showing the gentle sea cow emerged with the word “TRUMP” scraped in algae on its back went viral after it was spotted in the Homosassa River in Citrus County. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are looking for any information regarding the animal’s harassment.

The Sarasota-Herald Tribune reported that Bautista, a Tampa native and former wrestler, offered the reward on Twitter, adding: “And I promise there will be bonuses to that reward!”

Bautista seems to be ardent Biden-Harris supporter, as well as a fan of manatees.
