In Alaska, an otter possibly leaves her pup. He is 2 months old. People find him on a beach near a town. They name him after the town. Now he lives at a centre for sea animals. People take care of him.

An organisation says that he cannot go back to the wild. However, he seems happy. He likes the people at the centre. He likes to play in the water.

Difficult words: otter (an animal which looks a little like a cat, swims in water and catches fish), pup (a baby animal like an otter or a dog).
