Police save 'fur' otter

Police rescued an Otter named Ollie only to find out he was actually a fur collar.

Reports of a maimed furry creature strewn by the roadside caused the cops to rush to the scene - in Shropshire - after a number of worried motorists made contact.

Police were left baffled when it turned out the otter was actually a stray piece of fur collar and took to their Twitter account to laugh about the mistake.

They tweeted: "Report of an injured otter at the roadside turned out to be the fake fur collar from a coat."
