This is the moment an otter was caught on CCTV running around a supermarket.

The clip shows the slippery customer run through the doors from the street and past the tills – giving the cashier a shock.

Staff at Mr Price in Swinford, County Mayo, Ireland can be seen trying to corner the unexpected visitor, but it keeps running away through the aisles.

Store manager Cathy Nolan said an animal charity came to the rescue and took the otter away for treatment.

She said the expert said the animal had a chest infection and a temperature and was also close to starvation when it was found.

She added: “She is now nursing him back to health with all her other animals.”

The store put together a selection of treats and accessories from their pet aisle to send to the charity as a thank you for all their help.
