KUALA LUMPUR — A romp of otters wanting to visit Singapore’s Education Ministry had their visit cut short after their presence was detected by the ministry’s security personnel.

Taking to its Facebook, the ministry shared the family of at least 10 otters had entered the ministry compound on April 28.

Based on photos uploaded on the page, the mammals were seen scurrying down the stairs and hanging around at one of the staircase landings in the building.

Upon being detected by the security personnel, described as “gentle, patient but firm”, the otters were led to an environment said to suit their needs and aspirations better.
