East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) has found a Otter dead on the A22 just north of Polegate in East Sussex. This unusual find is a first for WRAS founder Trevor Weeks. "In the 25 years I've been rescuing wildlife I've never seen or even found a live or dead otter before."
The winter is supposed to be the quietest time of year for WRAS, but yesterday volunteer rescuers were rushed off their feet with calls to over 21 casualties. Normally the January call-out rate is averages about 5 a day. "This has been an amazingly busy day" said Trevor Weeks " it reminds me of the Boomtown Rats’ song "I Don’t like Mondays"! I hope that the rest of the week does not stay as busy."
