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.
