Get out of my puddle: angry otter attacks tractor in funny video

By The Siberian Times reporter

The indignant mammal in Omsk region shows no fear in attacking such a daunting enemy.

The vexed otter went on the offensive when a tractor encroached on its water hole on a remote farm. 

So much so, it forced the four-wheeled intruder to make a U-turn and retreat. 

The driver, from the Muromtsevsky district of Omsk region, managed to film the otter as it was making vicious jumps defending its territory.

It was evidently trying to bite through the tractor's wheels. 

Some viewers believed that otter may have chosen this as its breeding site.

Hi! Interesting video, but that's most definitely not an otter :)

Please correct the title!

An otter? In Finland, muskrats look like that. And outside their own waters, they are aggressive, too.
