Otters Cause Flight Delay In Houston

savagecatWhen passengers on a Continental flight out of Houston were told their flight would be delayed because of otters, a lot of them laughed, thinking it was a joke. It wasn’t.

There were a number of otters set to travel in the cargo area, but one somehow managed to escape its cage. “We watched them take them off the plane in a box, and the next thing we know one of the otters got loose and took off across the tarmac,” said passenger Harvey Bullock.

The flight ended up being delayed a full 80 minutes, but at least the passengers were able to make cheesy ‘otters on a plane’ jokes for the rest of their lives.
