Jaclyn Lopez, the Florida director at the center, said, “Manatees aren’t billboards, and people shouldn’t be messing with these sensitive and imperiled animals for any reason. However this political graffiti was put on this manatee, it’s a crime to interfere with these creatures, which are protected under multiple federal laws.”

Announcing the USD 20k reward plus bonuses to those who help in nabbing the culprits, Bautista shared on social media, "If there’s not already a reward for the arrest and conviction of the low life scummy MAGATs that did this I’ll throw in $20,000. And I promise there will be bonuses to that reward (sic)!"

He continued, "And I promise there will be bonuses to that reward (sic)!”

Bautista is in line to feature in The Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3.
