While returning from a bed & breakfast along the Columbia River in Washington, Natalie Therese and her companion were startled to see what appeared to be a large clump of fur in the middle of the road through the fog.

Therese was startled and thought they should halt.

Therese told The Dodo, “[I] hollered to look out and pull over.”

Three newborn otters were abandoned in the roadway, and when she got closer, she could see them.

“My partner thought [they were] just a clump of dirt or something!” Therese said.

Putting the pieces together, Therese realized she had seen the otters’ mother run away from an oncoming car. The babies, much too young to know what to do, had just cowered in the street. Now they were all alone, their scared mom watching from the nearby woods.

Therese decided she would help them get back to safety, and started pointing the shivering babies in the right direction.

Therese added, “I gently urged them off the road.

Therese waited to ensure that everyone understood what to do before leading them toward their mother.

“I stood back by the car and waited until the mother came out and all three babies ran off the road together,” Therese said. “[Then] I waited a few more minutes to make sure they wouldn’t run back to the road.”

Therese also recorded the event in a video that you can watch here:

Therese had a significant influence on the otter family’s destiny that day, and they had a similar impact on her.

Therese said, “I was really touched and brought to tears from the whole experience. Nature and all of her animals are breathtakingly gorgeous.
