The happy little guy is now under the care of Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre, which is planning to release him in open water when he’s healthy.
It’s not clear where the otter came from, or how he got to downtown Winnipeg.
This happy otter was found in Winnipeg today. With the help of the @WinnipegHumane, this little guy is comfortable and in care this evening with Wildlife Haven. We are working on assessing his condition and determining the best treatment course for him. pic.twitter.com/SKlvZgYhBb
