Wildlife enthusiasts love to capture moments that involve wild animals doing what they do best: roaming around the forest in search of food. But animals follow their own rules and do not listen to others. As a result, you must have loads of patience to capture the best wildlife moment. On the other hand, you may also set up a trail cam at one of the most frequented spots inside a forest and wait for the device to do the rest for you.
Recently, wolf enthusiasts in Minnesota, USA, set up a trail cam in a dense forest. They chose a spot near the beaver pond frequented by wolves. Their intention was to capture moments involving wolves. But, unfortunately, they caught something else instead.
Their captured footage also caught the attention of many online followers. The footage starts with many otters coming out of nowhere and gathering in front of the trail cam. They scratch the ground to loosen the mud and begin rubbing their bodies on the soil.
After a while, when all the otters disappear, one otter grabs the opportunity and starts dancing in front of the trail cam. The innocent yet energetic dance would melt away anybody’s heart. A bit further down the footage, you will suddenly find a deer and a fawn making a brief appearance in front of the trail cam. Soon the otters return, rubbing themselves on the loose mud.
While some otters were rubbing themselves on the loose mud, some were dancing simultaneously. They spend a long time in front of the trail cam, unaware that people are recording their actions. Once at night, a deer appears in front of the trail cam for a brief moment. A bear also appears at the same spot during the daytime.
After a few moments, a group of otters makes their way past the trail cam to the beaver pond. However, soon an otter decides to dig the ground right in front of the camera. The playful animal rolls on the loose mud for some time, and the rest of the otter family soon appears.
They bask under the sun on the loose mud, some rubbing their body and some rolling on the ground. During the night, a wolf appears in front of the trail cam. A bear and her three cubs also appear, and the cubs knock over the cam playfully.
