Earlier this month we told you about the otter pup rescued from along an Oregon roadway, who found a new home at the Oregon Zoo. Now the zoo is asking your help in naming him! Choose from the following names, inspired by local waterways:
- J.R. Papenfus: a creek in Lane County near the location where the pup was found. (J.R. is for junior, since a creek is junior to a river.)
- Little Pudding (nickname: LP): a tributary of the Pudding River, joining the main stem west of Mt. Angel.
- Hobson: a creek named for John Hobson, a Clatsop County pioneer who opened a salmon cannery near Tillamook.
