Baby otter receives rough swim lesson
A mother otter astonishingly teaches its newborn to swim, weeks after its birth.
Video of Molalla, a nine-week-old river otter at the Oregon Zoo, shows him being violently taught how to swim by his mother.
The mother's teaching style seems awfully harsh, given that she drags him lifelessly as she swims through the water.
