Ottery Pottery

This skinny otter cub was found lost and alone on a driveway near Stokesley this week. She was taken to the local vets .They found she had sore pads and was quite subdued. They rang the Sea Life Centre in Scarborough who suggested they ring me. I went over to collect her . She was very quiet and sad. I fluid fed her as she's had some fish at the vets and left her to rest in a quiet shed with warmth and strips of raw trout.

Otter cubs take a year to rear and The New Forest Wildlife Park have a wonderful reputation for caring for them. They are reared wild and ready for release at over a year old.
So she travelled down to them , I hope she fairs well and a big thankyou for their care of wild otters.
