In pictures: Lucky rescue otter

Ron the otter

This cute customer is Ron the otter. He was found abandoned at the side of a road in north-eastern Scotland. Luckily, he was quickly taken to the vets.

The little cub is being looked after by the Scottish SPCA in Fife, and is doing well. He'll be taken to a conservation project as soon as he can feed himself.

It's hoped he'll be released into the wild when he gets to 12 months old - which means he's got about 10 months to get bigger and stronger.
