This is really sad to hear.

No matter what, otters will always be cute.
It's like they're just built to make you awwwww!
At Sea Life Oberhausen in Germany, two beautiful sea otters were just hanging out on a stump.
They were just living the otter life, hanging out, being generally adorbz, when one of them grabbed a rock.
Then the unthinkable happened…
No, he didn't smash the other otter's face in! Why would you even think that? LOLz!
He started playing catch by himself! It was so amazing.
So check out the video (above) to see this amazing otter play catch with himself.
What a lucky little cutie otter!!
Elfin, the seas otter, lives at the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park, Vancouver, Canada.
Stanley Park is celebrating its 125th anniversary so in honor of the event, Elfin is the lucky otter who gets to celebrate things right… giant cake style!!
The aquarium made a big cake for Elfin, and don't worry, it's otter friendly.
The cake is made of shrimp, crab, muscles and clam "icing." Yuck! Sounds gross, though we guess that's an otter's fantasy meal.
Elfin was rescued as an orphan in Alaska and nursed back to health with the help of the aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Center staff.
So he extra deserves to be the one to eat a big cake!!
Check out the video (above) to see a cutie otter eating a giant cake!
Omg! Otters are super adorbz but this little guy specifically is disgustingly cute!
You make us sick you cute piece of preciousness! LOLz!
A cuddly little sea otter was hanging out, sunning himself just out of the water in Santa Cruz.
He's cute enough just laying there, but then he's gotta knock it up a notch and start rubbing his face all super cute like.
He's trying to give us a cuteness overdose and we're not having it! Not today, Mr. Otter!
Check out the video (above) but beware, it may be too cute for the average viewer!
Awwww! Or should we say y(aww)n! LOLz!
This is so crazy adorbz! Whoever had the idea to cut together vids of animals yawning is a genius.
We had no idea that so many animals yawn in basically the same exact way.
Yawning is the great equalizer!
Seriously, other than being insanely cute, this video makes us yawn.
We bet by the end of this vid, you'll have yawned at least once.
Check out the video (above) for some serious animal cuteness.
Its bark is saying no, but its tail is saying yes!
Down in Australia, a cattle dog spotted a sea otter playing with itself in the water, and the dog got super jealous it couldn't join the sea creature!
But instead of sulking - the dog tried to catch the sea otter by snapping at it from land.
Well, the sea otter caught on to the game, and soon the two of them were playing a crazy amazing game of hide and seek!
If you like cute videos, you'll LOVE this one!

At Australia's Perth Zoo, four Asian Small-clawed Otter pups were born at the end of March.
Now the little pupsters are finally grown enough to begin their swim lessons!!
What's so cool is it's not the zoo keepers that are giving them lessons or anything…
It's their older brothers!!
Four male older siblings are giving the young'uns swimming lessons in the afternoons.
The little babes recently got a checkup and vaccinations, so their swim lessons were put on hold.
The vet said:
"They are looking very healthy and progressing well, weighing between 550 and 780 grams each. These pups are quite active for their age, possibly due to the fact that they have older siblings."
Their older siblings also mature and learn valuable skills by helping to rear the pups!
It's just so friggin' cute we can't stand it!!
We have half a mind to fly to Australia just to watch these pups swim around! LOLz!
Check out a video of the little ones getting their recent checkup AFTER THE JUMP!!
Lucy and Grimace are two budding young artists at the Gulf Breeze Zoo in Pensacola, Florida.
Oh and they're also both otters… did we mention that? LOLz!
Zookeepers say they've literally sold over 50 pieces of otter artwork and used the money to buy toys and treats!
So they get to taste the fruits of their labor! If you can even call it labor. They look like they're having a blast!
And don't worry, the paint is totally non-toxic so it's completely safe for the otters.
Otters have incredibly short attention spans so they only paint once a week, making these paintings even more rare and ahmayzing!
Check out the video (above) to see the otter artists in action!!
