While it remains unclear when and how the manatee was mutilated—or if the ongoing investigation has secured any leads about the perpetrators—footage of the vandalized animal has sparked widespread outrage and revulsion. The West Indian manatee is a herbivorous marine mammal found in coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. Though manatees are beloved by the public for their rotund bodies and curious temperaments, those same qualities also make them vulnerable to human threats such as boat strikes and, in this case, harassment. Marine biologists said it was difficult to assess how much harm was done to the animal using only video footage. If the scrape penetrates the skin, then it likely caused some pain and stress.

Your money, it appears, goes to gift bags containing food and makeup for the dancers. The gift bags are prayed over before being presented. The power of God falls, the foundations are shaking, the chains are loose and people are saved. Monica Satcher said she and her group have gone into dressing rooms, touched strippers with their hands and watched them fall to the ground and cry. Some, she said, start speaking in tongues.

Making good on that order, registration opened Monday in Manatee County to receive the vaccine and the first doses were given Tuesday at the Manatee County Public Safety Center. At the time, Manatee County officials made 3, vaccines available for people 65 and older, and the goal is to vaccinate people a day starting this Tuesday. Manatee County Health Officials are working around the clock to make sure the plan to give vaccines to people 65 and older runs smoothly. That is really frightening us. Manatee County Officials say within the first 30 minutes of the registration website opening on Tuesday, people signed up.
