Description:
Warning: photo may be graphic in nature to some viewers. So this just happened. And this is how the story unravels leading up to and even beyond this image...Sea Otter catches fish (like an otter is apt to do), then a Seagull attempts to steal said fish (I guess like a gull is apt to do), and in a twist I never saw coming, rather than guard his fare, the Sea Otter instead catches the Seagull!! The Otter then literally (and I mean literally) starts to devour the head off the Seagull like a rabid werewolf, succeeding in tearing it from the neck, and digging in deeper into the marrow (pictures just can't convey this part!). And if that wasn't a good enough story, then wait, cause there's more. In yet another twist, every Bald Eagle in the area, young and old alike, then begin making passes at the Otter in an attempt to steal the gull for themselves. After near a half dozen unsuccessful dives, the story concludes with an adult Bald Eagle making away with the spoils and leaving the Otter with only a small little morsel, which it continues to happily gnaw away at. ‪#‎SurvivalOfTheFittest‬ ‪#‎IStillCantBelieveTheOtterReallyDidThat‬ ‪#‎AndTheyAllLivedHappilyEverAfter‬ ‪#‎Not‬
