Alaska otter gets new home in Oregon

Posted: Monday, October 25, 2010

SEWARD - Oregon now has a little MoJoe.

MoJoe, a rehabilitated sea otter, arrived at his new home Friday at the Oregon Coast Aquarium after taking an overnight cargo flight from the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.

MoJoe was found on a beach in Homer in July, suffering from a broken jaw and lacerations to his face after an apparent boat strike.

The four-month old sea otter was taken to Seward for rehabilitation, during which he gained 17 pounds.
