You Otter Beware

Last Thursday, a woman in Virginia was attacked by a rabid otter. She was cooling off in Claytor Lake when the otter bit her on the buttocks, thighs, and arms before attempting to drag her underwater, presumably to its ottertastic lair. The woman escaped after her sister punched the otter in the head. She is currently undergoing treatment for rabies exposure.

I'm posting this story because I have known for a long time that someday, the otters would turn on us. Any animal that is smart enough to use a rock to crack open it's dinner, is smart enough to kill and eat people. It is only a matter of time before the otters take over Virginia, which is fine...maybe one of them can defeat George Allen, but if they cross the river into Maryland, we are screwed.

Cross the river in MD? You mean like the dreaded snakehead fish? OH GAWD NO! Well, maybe they can take out Erlich. No. Wait. He did that on his own.

...that poor woman...(as they say in the south)...bless her heart!
