It’s rare that you even see a sea otter out of the water at all. Recently, however, I found a little guy sitting in the passenger side of a Mini (I was in the UK) depressed. It turns out – he doesn’t know how to drive stick shifts. Who knew the little otter could even drive at all?
This story has a happy ending. The owner of the car got into the car and proceeded to drive the otter to a nearby river. The otter, still a bit pouty, jumped into the water and swam his way back to sea life.
While I don’t expect to see another otter trying to drive a car again anytime soon, at least I know now to lend them an ottermatic if I ever do.
