When Otters Attack!

A “group, lodge, bevy, romp, family” or, as I prefer to call them now, “Gang of Righteousness Defender” otters in a Singapore park, were minding their own business , doing otter stuff, when an inconsiderate, non aware jogger ran through them and stepped on one of the otters.

All hell broke loose, and the next human they saw, which happened to be a 200 lbs, 60 year old man with his friend, strolling along on the path, right behind the jogger, got the blame.

The otters took him down in seconds, attacking his ankles and lower legs, and proceeded to bite and scratch him.
These otters in Singapore are likely the intermixed hybrids mentioned in this quote from Wikipedia:

Hybridisation of Asian small-clawed otter females with smooth-coated otter males occurred in Singapore. The resulting offspring and their descendants bred back into the smooth-coated otter population, but maintained the genes of their small-clawed otter ancestors. Today, a population of at least 60 hybrid otters are present in Singapore”
