"She asked us for help, as she wanted the otter to have a good home and proper care," WFFT wrote in a Facebook post.
Rescuers with WFFT headed to the scene, where they found a 3-month-old Asian small-clawed otter, whom they named Oscar. He was far too young to be separated from his mother. "At this stage in his life he would still be very dependent on his mother for milk, and would be with her 24 hours a day," WFFT said.
Knowing he needed all the help he could get, WFFT brought the little bundle back to the sanctuary, where they quickly realized what his favorite thing was.
