Kidnapped Baby Otters Were Neglected But They’ve Been Saved and Get Freedom and Food For First Time

It is truly a tragic reality, that in so many places throughout the world, poachers hunt wild animals in order to illegally sell them to people wanting exotic pets.  It is common for babies to be kidnapped; they often go into shock, suffer from hunger and dehydration, and die before being sold. It is horrible that so many animals are taken and kidnapped from their natural habitat and frequently taken from their mothers before they are developmentally ready. This is just so heartbreaking especially when you see how adorable, sweet and innocent these itty bitty baby otters.

Thanks to the many animal-lover/advocates, like TV host Frank Cuesta, whom you will see in the video below, many animals get rescued and returned to the wild.  Cuesta resides in Thailand, where he hosts a show that has been compared to Steve Irwin. He explores, helps, studies and rescues wildlife just as the late great legend Steve Irwin did.

Cuesta is the hero of this story of a rescue of two baby otters, after he was tipped off as to their location, before they could be sold on the black market. He headed to the location and somehow managed to save them and get them away from the bad people who wanted to harm these poor sweet fur babies.

Having studied veterinary medicine, Cuesta knows that these orphaned otter pups not only have to have limited human exposure, but actually need to be trained to be afraid of people before being reintroduced into the wild.  This is necessary for their safety and for sustaining the otter population. Luckily Cuesta knows exactly what to do and these babies should soon be back in the wild and their natural habitat.

Unless you speak Spanish you won’t understand exactly what Cuesta is tenderly saying to the pups he has saved, but you will get the gist of it.  Hearing the darling babies squeaking as they are finally fed, is simply joyful, as is the fact that they will safely be returned to the wild. The sounds of pure happiness emanating from their adorable little faces made my heart melt into a million pieces. Have you ever heard a sound so adorable in your life? Let us know in the comments
