Watch Grant the otter being released from Hillswick Wildlife Sanctuary - Something to make you smile this Tuesday

Grant...what an otter! He arrived here aged around two months at the end of last August after being caught in a thunderstorm having lost his mum in Gott. He has been such a character throughout his stay, always full of life and full of fun, so as you can imagine he was quite a challenge to catch when the time came to release him last week. And we have never had a release like it. He ran into the water with such joy that he leapt like a dolphin not once but five times before disappearing. We're keeping a close eye on the release site, but so far there is no sign of him returning.
