A woman survived a vicious attack but escaped with her ear nearly sliced off and her hand savagely bitten. The culprit behind Sue Spector’s attack was an otter! They sure look like adorable, furry creatures that are friendly in YouTube videos. River guide Marsha Whykle says otters can be ferocious. Last week, Marsha was leading a kayak tour along Florida’s Braden River when Spector was attacked by one of the animals.
