RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
