A wounded otter ran amok in a fast food restaurant in western Norway on Tuesday, terrorising the restaurant's owners and giving the wildlife officer sent to subdue it a nasty nip on the finger.
Ouch! Crab grabs otter by the eyebrow (08 Aug 13)
The animal, which appeared to have been hit by a ferry propeller, lurched breathing heavily into Skippys Fast Food in Molde, near Ålesund, a large gash on one leg and damage to its face.
The restaurant's owner, Mohamed Rashed, rang the police in panic.
"We did not know what kind of animal it was. I have never seen an animal like that in my life," he told TV 2. "I was terrified it was going to attack."
When the local wildlife officer, Håkan Sunde, tried to put the animal in a crate, it lunged at his finger, causing him to bleed profusely.
"I didn't have any gloves, so when I put the otter indie the dog cage, it decided to start eating on one of my fingers," Sunde told The Local. "It was not a serious injury, but it was quite strong in the jaws. I had a tetanus shot just after the bite, so it's OK."
He said he was seeing more and more otter-related activity in the region.
"The amount of otters is growing at the moment, because we observe them often and they show up in strange places," he said.
The otter had to be put down as it was too severely injured to be treated.
That would scare the crap otter me.
Death by cop.
Tomorrow’s menu Ah, too easy!
there otter be a law against animals like this running around
Morgan Spurlock should doc a documentary on how dangerous fast food is to otters.
Where was Boon?
Had one of these buggers attack my stringer of fish trailing my kayak up in the BWCA one year. We had a dispute over the ownership of the fish and it kept snorting and thumping my craft. Could’ve touched it if I was fool enough. I figured it would get in the kayak for sure since it is only about 6” above the water. I was fumbling for a firearm when the beggar finally threw in the towel and swam away. I was pretty sure I was going to end up in the drink with jaws. They’re pretty good sized close up.
They usually just mount other otters.
Luckily he escaped with only a bite to the finger.
Otters are similar to beavers and a beaver killed a Russian man last year.
Now, Flounder or Bluto, I could see doing this, but not Otter!
Lets let Otter defend himself.
I have heard of people getting bitten by big brown beavers.
Never saw that before, it’s good to be aware of your surroundings.
Leslie Nielsen respected beavers and as far as I know was never bitten by one.
The rampaging otter’s mate was just outside the bar. She was his significant otter.
Son, you otter not do that.
Mohamed Rashid??? Strange Norwegian name.
I’m sorry but the weirdest part of the whole story to me is, Norway, restaurant named “Skippys Fast Food” owned by “Mohamed Rashed”, compared to that the otter thing seems normal.
Don’t bring a dog cage to an otter fight.
Otters don't like Muzzies.
Now that was funny. “You have my attention.” LOL!
A wounded otter ran amok in a fast food restaurant...Is an otter running amok similar to a squirrel going berserk?
The restaurant’s owner, Mohamed Rashed....
Where was Boon?
Now there’s a headline you don’t see every day.
Not really, he moved there from Minnesota when he got tired of being a cab driver at the Minneapolis airport.
