The attack occurred on the evening of Tuesday, July 9 near the Madison River Bridge (mile marker four on Highway 191). The woman suffered significant bites to her hand. There is also an unconfirmed report of a male angler being attacked as well later in the evening.

While otter attacks are extremely rare, these are wild animals and they can be aggressive. It is especially important for people to keep a safe distance from adults and their pups.

FWP is posting signs in the area warning of the danger.
