OHP River Otter

ROLAND, Okla. (KFOR) – While many families across the Midwest are dealing with flooding, game wardens and troopers across Oklahoma are also trying to help the littlest residents.

Recently, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers who were working a roadblock near Moffett discovered a baby river otter who was struggling to keep its head above water.

Trooper Carson Cabaniss walked into the high water along with Trooper Kyle Borden and rescued the little guy.

The troopers say they didn’t get any video or pictures of the rescue, but they later shared a video of the little otter scurrying on dry land.
