Otter chases man (1 Viewer)

At least in North American River Otters it's a documented behavior...there is a fairly entertaining video of a teenager getting attacked by one in Florida on youtube.

I cannot see anything in this video that looks like an attack. I have seen otters fight and it did not look like that. I would suggest its a cub that has lost its mum, the calls are more like contact calls.

I have also seen a mum look at me and bare its teeth, again not like the poor one in the video
