In this narrative adapted from Nature: Christmas in Yellowstone, a young otter has injured one of his front feet. He is struggling along the frozen banks of the Yellowstone River. He calls for his family but they aren?t in sight. Finally, his family swims down the river towards him. A happy reunion ensues but then they leave him again to hunt for fish. He cries as they swim away, and then he mistakenly swims in the opposite direction. Near a water fall, he stops. His family is nowhere in sight, but he does catch a fish. A coyote looks on hungrily, anxious to scare the otter and steal his meal.
