While most wild animals have a natural fear of humans, there are certain critters out there who are not afraid to face us down when the opportunity arises. Prepare to be amazed by the feisty otter in the above video, who jumps onto a boat, steals the fish just caught by the humans onboard and swims away without a trace of fear. As LiveLeak reports, “it looks like it is not the first time” the otter has pulled off this stunt! He is undoubtedly a pro when it comes to securing a free lunch for himself.
It just goes to show that animals are certainly a lot more smart and cunning than we give them credit for. However, it is important to remember that although this otter is clearly at ease around humans, most other wild animals are inclined to avoid us … with good reason, as this natural sense of wariness keeps them safe from those who might wish to harm them.
