our otters left a couple of days ago for rehab offered by dave webb at the uk wild otter trust in north devon. tom our vet was made very welcome and they even named no.2 otter, who was found collapsed on a river bank, after him ! otters normally stay with their mothers for around 18 months so this a long and challenging process for the orphans and the otter trust. as our patients were only about 6 and 3 months old, unfortunately we could not have just released them back where they were found. initially reluctant to be captured for their journey, the pair are settling in very well , are active and eating well. we are very grateful to dave and everyone at the trust who are now caring for them. ...
