As I scan the internet I am always particularly touched by videos that exhibit unlikely bonds between animals of different species. Although it seems to occur quite often, it never ceases to amaze me, that a horse and a chicken, an elephant and a kitten or a dog and a monkey form a protective and nurturing relationship.
In a world where there is so much violence, it somehow makes me more hopeful that perhaps there is something intrinsically good and loving in human beings, that may ultimately outweigh our competitive and destructive instincts…one can hope.
The video that you are about to watch below, is yet another instance of unlikely trust betweenan elderly Finnish man, Seppo Laaman, and an animal that lives in a hole surrounded by snow and ice near his home. This lovely man opened his front door one day, to find this starving wild otter whom he nicknamed “Iivari”, needing help. He fed him fish and worms to restore him to a healthy enough condition to go back and live in his natural environment in the wild.
As you watch this heartwarming footage of their trusting relationship, understand that this smart little otter is not Seppo’s pet. They have an understanding, as you will see them communicate, that is mutual and has boundaries that are free.
