Three orphaned otters have been released at our Loch Arkaig Pine Forest after they were rescued and raised by staff at the Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Eddy, Stream and Smoult came to the Scottish SPCA as orphans having become separated from their mothers at a very young age.
Eddy was eight weeks old when he was found near a stream in the Borders calling out in distress in December 2016. Stream was nine weeks old and found at the side of a busy road just outside Fort William very tired and weak in January 2017. Smoult was 10 weeks old when she was found on a path alongside the river Ness in the Highlands separated from her mother in January 2017.
