Thomas Cope, the Clearwater lawyer who posted a video on social media of him pushing a raccoon off his boat 20 miles out is already being investigated by FWC.

The Florida Bar is now investigating the incident as well to see if he broke any laws.

Cope has since apologized, but that pretty much falls on deaf ears if you saw how he was talking in the video.

The video which is now deleted was captioned “Trash panda came out from hiding 20 miles from dock!”

Cope and his friends are yelling at the raccoon who is just trying to figure out how to escape. “Get the F off my boat! What the F is wrong with you?” The video ends with the raccoon swimming aimlessly 20 miles out and they left it there.
