Otter, resting

Not the most cheering sight to find on the pavement outside home at the start of a Sunday morning walk.

Poor silly otter must have tried to cross the road on Saturday night.

Vet has been called to remove its resting body.

Update


Thanks to Rathgael Veterinary Surgery for receiving the resting otter and arranging for his onward transport. Looks like a good candidate for taxidermy.

I also contacted MAGNI to report a sighting as otters ( lutra lutra ) are a protected species in Northern Ireland.
