CALGARY—The Calgary Zoo says one of its North American river otters has died in the pool at the Canadian Wilds exhibit.

The zoo says a keeper noticed 12-year-old Logan struggling in the pool and jumped in to save him, but the otter did not survive.

A spokeswoman says Logan’s death has upset staff and an investigation is being done to determine what happened.

The zoo has three remaining otters: one year-old male Finnegan, 12- year-old female Charlotte and 16-year-old male Callebaut.
