Video: Otter runs through snowy B.C. streets

This one animal loved all the winter weather.

A Victoria resident captured a unique sight in downtown Victoria last week — an otter running through the snow-covered streets.

“At first I thought it was a dog. Then I realized it was definitely not a dog and was baffled why this otter was here,” said the person who posted the video to Reddit.

“Then my next instinct was to catch him but then that’s a bad idea so I took a video,” they said. 

The otter was spotted on Dec. 30 on Quadra Street after a heavy snowfall.

Other people chimed in on Reddit saying they spotted other otters doing the same thing in Saanich. A person was captured on another viral video in Saanich during that same time frame clearing sidewalks with a leaf blower.
