You Otter See This! (Sam I Am)

386610_10151162146381990_360719025_n“Sutro Sam” has decided to pay the people of San Francisco a visit. Sam The River Otter gets his name from the fact he now resides, at least for the moment, at an old San Francisco landmark known as the “Sutro Baths.” SFGate.com quotes Megan Isadore, co-founder and director of outreach and education for the River Otter Ecology Project as saying, “This otter is the first otter recorded in decades and decades in San Francisco, and as far as I know he is the only otter in San Francisco.” CBS5 and KCBS Radio have more coverage here, and KGO 7′s coverage is here. Welcome, Samuel- enjoy your stay! (Of course, he has his own Twitter account.)
