At the Benderdinker Kayak/Canoe Paddle and Food Festival, in Augusta, Georgia, one patron found an injured baby river otter, and decided to do something about it. He notified Benderdinker founder, Kristina Williams, and her husband rescued the otter and began to rehab him, and contacted Department of Natural Resources.
The DNR suggested taking him to Highland Animal Hospital in Augusta, where he is now getting proper medical care. His injuries are believed to be caused by the talons of a local raptor.
Williams said she named the baby otter “Dinker” in honor of the festival.
Happy Ottersday :#)
