Police officers in Shropshire, England recently had an interesting encounter when they responded to reports that an injured otter was on the side of the road.

It turns out what responding Newport officers found wasn’t an injured or an otter at all.

With all of the commotion over Ollie’s new celebrity status, fans are being given the chance to meet the furry guy:
