Slimbridge Wetland Centre has confirmed that one of its three otters has passed away this week. Minnie, who was a North American River Otter, died on Tuesday 15 October 2019.
Leaving behind her Mum, Flo and twin sister, Ha Ha, Minnie was part of the ‘Back from the Brink’ wetland area at Slimbridge and appeared daily at the attraction during feeding time demonstrations.
A spokesperson for Slimbridge said: ‘Despite the fast response from the Living Collections team and our vets, we were unable to save her.
‘As you can imagine, this is a very sad time for our team who have worked with her for a number of years. Minnie was loved by staff, volunteers and visitors and she will be sadly missed.’
