BILLINGS, Mont. (WTHR) - A zoo in Montana got a surprise when one of its animals unexpectedly gave birth earlier this month.

A river otter at Zoo Montana in Billings delivered four pups to the amazement of everyone working there. Sadly, the mother rejected her litter, so zookeepers have taken on around-the-clock feedings to give the pups a fighting chance.

A zoo spokesperson says the chances of their survival are low, but says the odds get better as each day passes.

You can keep up with the progress of the pups on the zoo's Facebook page and website.
