He Brought A Scared Baby To The Beach. But WATCH The Left Side Of The Video
When a six-week-old scared baby otter pup got separated from his otter family, his chances of survival were slim to none.
Luckily, one man happened to notice the pup was lost and informed an otter watch group, who monitored the young otter pup from a distance. After watching the pup for ten hours and waiting to see if the otter’s family would return, veterinarians decided to take the orphaned otter to the Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS). At the wildlife Reserve, the vets could feed and care for the otter while planning an attempt to reunite the baby otter with his family.
The rescue team named the baby otter, ZooToby, and after one week, the vets believed the otter was strong and healthy enough to be released back into his natural habitat. The video below follows a team of over 20 people who helped scour the shoreline for ZooToby’s family so they could reunite the baby otter with his family.
After rescuers found ZooToby’s family, they saw the perfect opportunity to reunite the family again. Once released, ZooToby’s tiny baby squeaks were immediately noticed by the adult otters. Uncertain, the otter family made their way down the beach, picking up speed as the sound of their missing baby’s cries grew louder. Suddenly, ZooToby found himself staring into the faces of his family, who wasted no time in taking the youngster to safety. Carrying him by his neck scruff, the otter family made their way back down the beach.
In order to make sure ZooToby is truly accepted by his family, the rescue team is still keeping an eye on the otters. After one week, rescuers were happy to report back that the mother otter is still taking care of ZooToby. In addition, for everyone who will understandably be concerned about the mountains of trash piled up on the beach, FastSnail has announced that authorities are planning a coastal beach cleanup.
