Wild otter and man become friends

Seppo Laamanen, 65, lives in a cabin in Punkaharju, eastern Finland.

One day, a small and malnourished otter showed up at Seppo’s door.

So he fed the starving otter.

Ever since, the man and the otter, whom Seppo named Iivari, became good friends. Iivari would visit the man every day.

Otters are among the coolest of animals IMO. Every time I watch one of these things I find myself saying “awww…”. I didn’t think I had it in me. Please don’t tell anyone, that would blow my cover as a Big Badass 🙂

This book has been on my reading list for awhile.

Ring of Bright Water, written in 1959 and published on 12 September 1960, was about adventure and light and nature, set amidst an impossibly romantic setting. It is a book about a man who has escaped, and who has entered into a (meaningful) relationship with the natural world, and who has befriended an otter, two otters…

Nice – it’s like having a pet without any of the responsibilities, other than feeding it.

OMG what a heart warming friendship. asking for nothing in return. up here in the great north woods of Maine the winters can be brutal on the deer and other animals. i have had as many as 7 waiting in the woods for me to come out with food.apples are their favorite. pretty much eat out of your hand. sad part is in november they are hunted within a few short years they are gone only to be replaced with a new herd. gods gift to me
