Tsawwassen’s William and Kathy Hansen got a surprise visitor in their backyard over the weekend.
An otter, the same type of critter that popped up again recently on the prowl for more koi at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver, paid them a visit Saturday morning.
“We did not know what that thing was. Freaked my cat right out,” Kathy said with a laugh. “My husband just jumped up and started taking pictures.”
She said the otter eventually took off through a hole in their fence.
Their daughter Rachel posted photos of the otter to the Tsawwassen Loop Facebook group where it generated plenty of chatter.
