People Want to Replace A Confederate Statue With A Monument To This Manatee

By

A manatee named Snooty who has been living at the South Florida Museum for 69 years passed away in a terrible accident last Sunday after being trapped in a gateway in his enclosure. Snooty's caretakers didn't realize that the 1,300 pound manatee had become too big to fit through the opening. A tragic day, but Snooty did live almost 30 years longer than the average wild manatee, according to The Huffington Post. Still, it's a loss that some people are taking harder than others.
