Wotta notter


London's first wild otter found
By Peter Law

CENTRAL London's first ever wild otter has been found - a discovery which scientists say is as significant as the return of the salmon to the River Thames.
The body of one of the River Thames' most mysterious inhabitants was found on a riverbank last Friday.
Measuring 122cm and weighing 9.7kg, the male otter was found on The Highway, in Wapping, about a mile from the Tower Bridge.
Scientists believe the notoriously shy mammal had traveled to London down the River Lee.

Yeah, I couldn't see why they were so pleased to find a dead one - they must be desperate to try to prove the river is cleaner when it obviously isn't.
