Playful and rambunctious, four young otters paddled up the river and discovered a creek swollen with spring rains to explore. For weeks they frolicked and chased one another further upstream. The days grew long and the summer heat shrank the creek to a mere trickle. The pups found themselves stranded far from their home in the river.
Emma and Humphrey stumbled upon the otters while playing in the park. When they learned of the otter’s plight, Emma and Humphrey put their heads together and a rescue plan evolved.
