Florida Wildlife Hospital Caring For Three Orphaned Otter Pups

The Florida Wildlife Hospital is asking the public for donations to help it raise three young otter pups. A spokeswoman said the three siblings, two boys and a girl, are only five to six weeks old and their survival isn’t guaranteed.

The wildlife hospital said it will cost up to $2,400 each to raise them until they can be released.

A resident in Titusville was redoing their driveway when they saw an adult otter run out from a den they didn’t know was there. The mother never returned leaving the three orphans.

Normally the wildlife hospital starts getting otter babies starting in February.
