Otter Mail

A mailman who rescued a baby otter on a Scottish roadside took her on a 350 km tour in his mailbag!

The little cub named Orla was spotted by Kenny Wilson lying on the side of a road. He stopped his car, popped her in his mailbag to keep her warm took her along with him to a car rally before taking her to an animal rescue centre.

Mr. Wilson said he didn't think Orla would survive as she was very cold when he found her: "It looked as if she had either been abandoned or her mother had been hit by a car."


The six-week-old brown European otter is said to be doing well at the centre, where she is being fed and kept warm. A local supermarket has even stepped in to help out by providing Orla with fresh salmon to eat every day while she’s at the centre.

And its just better that way. because I've been homeschooled since 3rd grade and I'm in 8th grade now,  I have a very small social life. I have done stuff like dance and cheerleading but still, I only have one good friend (actually she is AWESOME!)

There are plenty of educational books, videos, and websites that are easily accessible online or from the library (seriously, Khan Academy and Crash Course saved my life, bless those men). nice! I have asked my local school but they refused because I'm not vaccinated (we don't believe in vaccines) but NY is one of the strictest  states for homeschool. we are moving and I might be able to go to high school but I could always stick with homeschool. With the social side, i have lots a lot of my social skills so now I'm really shy but i can work and fix that
