Minnesota girl injured after being attacked by otter in Wisconsin lake

LUCK, WI (WTAQ) - A 12-year-old girl from Minneapolis is getting rabies shots, after she was attacked by an otter in northwest Wisconsin.

Media reports said 12-year-old Rory Kliewer was swimming with friends in Bone Lake near Luck, when she climbed onto a dock and the otter bit her in the rear.

The otter also struck Rory's head and scratched her face. It then chased her onto dry land, where a friend's mother and a dog distracted the otter.

A family friend yelled at the otter until it retreated.

The family said the rabies shots were meant to be a precaution.

Rory tells the St. Paul Pioneer Press she's not sure if she'll ever swim in a lake again.
