Otters Cause Flight Delay In Houston

When passengers on a Continental flight out of Houston were told their flight would be delayed because of otters, a lot of them laughed, thinking it was a joke. It wasn't.

There were a number of otters set to travel in the cargo area, but one somehow managed to escape its cage. "We watched them take them off the plane in a box, and the next thing we know one of the otters got loose and took off across the tarmac," said passenger Harvey Bullock.

The flight ended up being delayed a full 80 minutes, but at least the passengers were able to make cheesy 'otters on a plane' jokes for the rest of their lives.

Don't you love news stories with "somehow"?

If the reporter had not used that word, the story would be the same. By using it, he implies that key details are being left out intentionally.
