Cute Alert: Orphaned river otter finds new home at Grandfather Mountain
Abandoned in the woods of Asheville, Uno the river otter has finally found a new home at Grandfather Mountain.
The attraction's staff announced Thursday the addition of the nearly 1-year-old pup to their otter preserve along with current residents Nottaway, the exhibit's oldest otter at 18-years-old, Luna and Oscar.
Uno was brought to a rehab until in Lincolnton, North Carolina prior to his trip to Linville where he learned to swim and catch fish. However, the trainers there said he became to affectionate toward humans so the decision to made to bring him to Grandfather instead of releasing him into the wild.
The otter is currently off-display but can be seen during the preserve's behind-the-scenes tours that begin in April, the report said.
