“I have spoken to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall Mayor Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan on Wednesday . He agreed to form a special team to look into this threatened species,” he said. Yasmin theorised that the otters may have swum upstream from their native habitats, escaped domestic captivity, and if indeed a threatened species, possibly set loose by wildlife traffickers for unknown reasons.

Malaysian Nature Society’s head of conservation Balu Perumal said if the otters have been present in the park and its lake for some time now, they should be considered native creatures. The lake also has tortoises alongside the plentiful fish that attract the otters.
