Here’s your weird sign of the week…
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks have posted an otter warning sign on the bank of the Madison River west of West Yellowstone following an attack there on Tuesday.
Not much is known about the attack other than an unidentified woman received numerous otter bites to her hand while near the Madison River Bridge. There is an unconfirmed report that an angler was also attacked in the same vicinity later that night.
So why would an otter attack a human?
Theories range from the animal was rabid, the animal was protecting its young, or the animal was simply a jerk.
Ok, that last one was mine.
Do you think you could fend off an otter attack? Would you pay attention to otter warning signs?
