"...as I watched, the mother otter dived into the water and came up with a plump salmon,
which she subdued and dragged on to a half-submerged log.
As she ate it, while of course it was still alive,
the body split and I remember to this day the sweet pinkness of its roes as they spilled out,
much to the delight of the baby otters who scrambled over themselves to feed on the delicacy.
One of nature’s wonders, gentlemen:
mother and children dining upon mother and children."
