    Woman Saves Dogs From Attacking Otter-Florida

    WEST BOCA, Fla. -- A Boca woman jumped into a canal to save her dogs after a crazed otter attacked the animals.



    Leah Vanon was walking her lab, Jasmine, and toy terrier, Wiley, this week, along a grassy stretch near a canal. The petite mother of two spotted the four otters and decided to stop and watch them play.

    I have an otter family that lives in the marsh right behind my house. I steer clear of them because regardless of what that article said Otters can and do carry rabbies. A rabid otter attacked a boy here on Tybee a few years ago.
