Calgary Zoo blames death of otter on ‘unauthorized’ pair of pants
Two Calgary Zoo staff members have been disciplined after an investigation found an otter died after becoming entangled in a pair of pants that had been dropped in its enclosure. Logan, a 12-year-old North American river otter, was seen struggling to swim in the Canadian Wilds habitat. A zookeeper jumped in to aid the distressed animal but despite best attempts, it died.
