A Florida lawyer who filmed himself saying “So long, sucker” to a raccoon he left stranded 20 miles offshore is now being investigated by the Florida Bar, the Orlando Weekly reported.

The Facebook video posted by Clearwater lawyer Thomas Cope presumably shows him and his friends yelling at the raccoon while shooing it off of the boat.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission launched an inquiry on May 8, stating, “It is still too early to speculate as to what violations took place in this incident."

Though Cope has since apologized for leaving the raccoon to die, Florida Bar officials confirmed that an investigation into Cope’s raccoon incident is underway, but did not say which rules he may have violated.

The now-deleted video was originally captioned, "Trash panda came out from hiding 20 miles from dock! Anyone else had these things squat on their boat?"

After the raccoon fell off the boat, the video shows the animal swimming aimlessly in the ocean.

“Knowing raccoons can be rabid and unpredictable, the only realistic option we could think of in the moment was to get the raccoon off the boat," Cope said in a statement.
