An investigation has been opened after a manatee in a Florida river had the word "TRUMP" written onto its side, officials said Monday.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to know who defaced the animal in the headwaters of the Homosassa River in Citrus County. The manatee did not appear to be hurt, the agency said, because it seemed that the word was etched into algae on its body.
