Young river otter hit by car to be released back into wild Thursday

Late last month WildCare, a wildlife hospital in Marin, received a seriously injured patient from Belvedere: a young river otter. Based off her scratches and head trauma, medical staff deduced that she’d been hit by a car. After receiving initial treatment for a broken toe and other minor injuries from WildCare, the otter was transferred to a special otter enclosure at Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue for three weeks of recuperation. Thursday morning the medical care and attention she received will pay off, when she’s introduced back into the wild.Bay Area NewsBelvedereMarinriver otterSonomaWildlife
