Alaskan Baby Otter – level 3

05-10-2017 07:00

In Alaska, an otter possibly abandoned her 2-month-old baby, and people rescued the pup from a beach at the town of Kasilof. People named him after the town and now a wildlife team is caring for him at the Alaska SeaLife Centre.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service deemed that he is non-releasable, so he will not be able to go back to the wild. However, he seems to be happy with the centre’s staff and happy to frolic in the water.

Difficult words: abandon (leave), deem (consider), release (let something go), frolic (play and enjoy).
