What kind of proof, you ask?
Rabid otter mauls Venice walker, 96
The otter is normally thought of as a reasonably adorable creature. Except in Florida, where they attack the elderly. Yes, a 96-year-old man was brutally savaged by a rabid 3-foot-long otter.
Fortunately for the victim, instead of being discovered by your average sun and crack-addled Floridian, a good Samaritan came to his aid. Here's the money quote from the 911 call:
"There's a man on the ground with an otter on him..He's lost a lot of blood. This otter is nonstop...Please hurry."
They finally beat the otter senseless with a shovel. The victim survived; the otter's condition is unknown.
Florida--if it's not the alligators, it's the g*ddam otters...
