Otters hold hands when they sleep. And, apparently, crave blood.

My wife and I each independently thought of the strangest headline we'd read at that point.

Everyone who knows me, knows I am an otter lover.  This said, we must understand rabies knows no mammalian bias, it sees/prefers no color or fur type. But I think I would prefer an otter attack over a bat, a raccoon, or a pit bull any day.  Still,  I'll twist that little fuckers head off if it comes anywhere near.  What you really don't want is Heloderma Suspectum latching on.  Honest to Christ, I almost had that happen once, but he was a friendly little fella, and instead of throwing down a leg-removal inducing bite on me, as reward for not running over him on my bike, simply ran under a bush and hissed at me for the effort.
