Record number of otters rescued at Sealife Center means extra cuteness
ALASKA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It's an otter overload at the Alaska Sealife Center.
Staffers are currently caring for six sea otter pups, a record number for the facility.
And the newest resident is a one-month old male found when he was just a couple days old.
Caregivers are giving the otter pup round the care attention, bathing him, feeding him with a bottle and helping him as he teethes.
The Sealife Center says last year was their busiest rescue and stranding season ever, with almost 300-percent higher caseloads.
The center says they expect this year to be just as busy.
