Indeed, as he battled through the rain, MacPherson spotted an otter playing in the middle of the road. Worried he would run it over, he stopped the car and pulled over, climbing out for a closer look. And to his surprise, it was still there, minding its own business. It hadn’t run away in fright.
Getting up close with an otter in the wild isn’t an opportunity that presents itself very often. So MacPherson decided to make the most of it. He approached it slowly, wondering how long it would take for the otter to spook and run off.
But as he got closer, the otter didn’t run away. Instead, it bounded up to him – and began biting at his feet, emitting an absolutely adorable battle cry in the process. Indeed, presumably the otter thought MacPherson was getting the fright of his life in this endearing showdown of man versus mammal.
