And though usually regarded as adorable, otters are nothing to mess with.
That’s a lesson a group of women in Montana learned this week when an otter attacked them while recreating on the Jefferson River. Cowboy State Daily’s Mark Heinz reports that all three women in the group were hurt, one bitten badly enough on her arms and face to be life-flighted to the nearest hospital.
