Two orphaned African clawless otter cubs, also known as Cape clawless otters, were flown to Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital in two separate flights.
Pilot Raymond Steyn collected Oscar from the Grahamstown area, flight duration a mammoth 7.7 hours, and pilot Anton Millar collected Otto from East London, flight duration 6 hours. Thank you to both.
The rehabilitation of otters is complex and requires the expertise of an otter specialist. Nicci Wright is a wildlife rehabilitation specialist and Oscar and Otto are in her capable hands.
