Orphaned sea otter found in Alaska has a new home in Chicago


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. An orphaned sea otter pup was wounded, dehydrated and malnourished when people in Seward, Alaska, found him. They scooped him up and sent him to a new home at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. Baby sea otters need 24-hour care from their moms, and the aquarium says it can stand in. The otter does have an awkward name - Pup EL2306 - but as of this morning, we've received no word that he particularly cares. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
