Yesterday, the Harbor Patrol in Morro Bay, California, responded to a report of an otter pup crying in the harbor. The pup was no more than 12-hours-old, and was giving off distress cries because it had become separated from its mom. With the help of veterinarian Dr. Heather Harris and Fish and Sea Otter Biologist Mike Harris, they located mama. Presumably this meant cruising the harbor until she heard the pup, and it totally worked.
