SEWARD, Alaska - The Alaska SeaLife Center says it has taken in a sea otter pup found near a Homer beach.

The center says in an announcement that multiple callers reported the animal on a road near Mud Bay at the base of Homer Spit.

The Homer Stranding Network investigated and could not locate the sea otter's mother.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service authorized the pup's rescue.

The center says the female sea otter pup is six to eight weeks old and weighs almost 8 pounds.

The center says the Fish and Wildlife Service will determine placement for the pup and its stay at the Seward center is likely to be short.
