Cops Attempt to Help 'Injured' Otter But It Turns Out to Be Faux Fur Coat Collar
One animal turned out to be a faux fur.
Police in England who rushed to help what they thought was an injured otter were surprised to find something very different lying on the side of the road.
Cops in Newport, Shropshire, were on patrol when they saw something on the ground. When they got close to the hairy object, they discovered it was a faux fur collar from a winter coat.
The collar, which they named Ollie the Otter, gained national attention after the West Mercia Police Safer Neighborhood Team posted it on Twitter.
