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. ...

Would love to volunteer xx

Doesn’t look stressed now. Hope he finds a mate

Thanks Joe! 👍 Stay safe little one. 🦡

this little otter was so lucky to be spotted by dave, a friend of the hospital whilst he was out running. the animal was lying by a fisherman who was completely ignoring it. the poor animal would certainly have perished had dave not sprinted home and got help. on the way to us otter vomited a chewed rubber fish lure and was completely collapsed . we were not very hopeful for it but have done everything we can. we hope its enough ...(video in comments of last photo) ...

Shame on that fisherman 😡 Thank goodness you was at the right place at the right time Dave. Thank you. Hope the otter makes a full recovery. You all do such an amazing job ❤️

Can't help but be greatly suspicious of the fisherman for this....are there any other injuries ?...a lot of fishermen hate otters

So glad he is ok, just sent a donation ,a small but something towards his costs...may buy him a real fish! As an Essex girl, but no longer living there, glad you are there.

Poor wee fella - some bloody fishermen are so careless leaving line, hooks and debris around to harm our animals and wildlife!

How anyone can ignore any animal in distress at all, let alone such a beautiful one as this ♥ Well done for all your efforts. Really hoping the otter pulls through.

we are so pleased you could work your magic! we were so worried about him! you are all our heros for everything you do! ❤❤🦦❤❤ x

Thank god the wildlife hospital was there to help.. Hope the otter makes a full recovery. Will it be returned back to the wild after its recovery Apparently otters sightings are becoming more frequent in essex this just goes to show how clean our inland waterways are becoming.

Well done great job!!! Heroes of the animal world.. must be a great feeling to save the animals that would surely die without your help.. thank you for caring 🤗🥰

Very proud of our Son in law who is a very caring person. Our daughter is in safe hand. We'll done for all your work South Essex wildlife Trust.

Well done guys!! I can't believe the fisherman sat there, ignoring the poor creature 😡 Thank you for helping xx

Whether that fish lure was the fisherman's or not, shame on him for not helping the beautiful otter. Some people have hearts of stone. Thank goodness Dave came along and knew exactly what to do. Got him to the best place to give him a chance of survival. Really hope he continues to do well. xx

Thank you Dave, for saving this little otter. Thanks to the wonderful Vet too! 💜🌟💖

Poor little guy he’s just a baby!! Shame on that fisherman leaving him there to die. Probably thought one less otter stealing “his” fish. They are just innocent wildlife trying to survive. Good luck little otter! Keep fighting 😘😘😘

Thanks for your kindness to all animals, hope the pigeon I bought in yesterday wasn’t to poorly 👏👏

Hope Karma catches up with that Fishermen, Wicked man, ignoring a beautiful animal in destress, probably the fishermans fault, it was probably one of his what the Otter swallowed.😥well done to all involved that saved the beautiful Otter.💚

Thank you for helping the little fella....Otters are my absolute favourite animal, so beautiful 😍..... hoping he’ll make a full recovery....As for that fisherman 😡🤬....

Thank you for helping this little mite, shame on the man who was watching it lying there suffering. Maybe he just didn’t know what to do? But then a quick google search would have told him 🤦‍♀️

How could the fisherman ignore him and do nothing 🤬🤬🤬. What a 🛎 end he is. Thankyou for helping and hope the little guy makes a full and speedy recovery, xx

Thank you Dave and everyone at the hospital. As to that disgusting fisherman, I’d like to shove a fishing hook where the sun don’t shine! 😡 Hope the little one does well.

How can anyone ignore a distressed animal, I hope he/she makes a full recovery

I do hope the lovely Otter pulls through. How anyone can behave so callously is beyond me. Thank goodness for the nice people in this world. Well done, Dave.

Thank you AWESOME HUMANS, there are some out there!! Hoping the little guy makes it, he is in the best hands xx

Thank you Dave and South Essex Wildlife Hospital.Fingers crossed for this little beauty<3

That fisherman wants shooting😡grateful thanks to Dave for getting help. Lets hope it was in time and you great team at the South Essex Wildlife Hospital have done your very best to keep this little fella alive. Otters are so lovely.😇

Thank you Dave and to all at the wildlife hospital for all you are doing to help Ollie the Otter

Donated to a good cause...

I donated yesterday but was one hell of a problem doing it.

Brilliant 😁

I tried donating yesterday but it wasn’t working through Facebook, kept saying suspended and I tried direct on your website but same issue. Will try again today xx

To anyone thinking about doing this, please do - Sue, Tom and the team are absolutely vital to us at BDMLR to give us a way of rapidly assessing and looking after the seals we collect in the region - and the standard of care they get is incredible. Please do help if you can!

Can you add the link to donate to the top your post included in your comments please? I can share it with the link then ❤️
