Poor little fellas, scared to death... :(

(Some have otter obsessions, and then there are the squirrel-obsessed... :) )

Yeah, but it's cute because you know they're not really in any danger. They're just getting vaccine shots so they don't get sick. Maybe the staff could have held them and petted their ears or something to reassure them, only otters bite! (You saw that one pup grabbing the stethoscope tube. He would have done the same to a finger.) I'm afraid they had to be held securely. No doubt the staff got it over with as quickly as possible so they weren't stressed for longer than necessary.

I've seen vets handle scared animals for shots and weighing (cats and dogs aren't much better, really) and do a far better job of easing the panic-stricken critter. Perhaps the vets in Oz need to work with vets up here who know how to keep biting critters calm. Yes, the baby otters are cute- Most baby critters are. :)
