Otter Mail

Orla the Otter Cub

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.
