Otter attack!

(I'm taking odds on how long it takes this thread to degenerate into an argument over otters vs fish populations).http://www.seaworld.com/assetrepo/me...s/OtterKit.jpg

At another point, you hear the caller say, "Here it comes! Here it comes!" as the animal apparently charges the men.


I know I wouldn't be laughing if it happened to me, but this gives me a chuckle.:biggrin:

There certainly is a humorous aspect to the story, but the reality is any attack by a rabid animal is a very serious matter.

Too bad some of this forum wasn't there, there wouldn't be enought of that otter left to make a decent sandwich:biggrin:

I can remember a spring fed river that was a favorite of local tubers near Lake City Florida that had a similar incident....a pair of otters were swimming out from the bank of the river and attacking the tubers....chewed holes in several of the inner tubes and bite some of the swimmers....cute little critters but same can be said about a lot of animals until you have to fight them off

Otters chewing holes in tubes and attacking tubers. This could be a plus for otters on the Little River this summer!

Dear lord. Poor guy. I feel really bad for him, but I do have to admit that 911 call had my rolling.

That's the Itchatucknee I think. Been down it a few times and seen lots of otters every time. Very pretty place.

OK, that made me laugh! Sounds like the guy with no teeth from Ax Men...
