Aquarium announces new name of rescued otter


For rescued Otter, Bogey is
a winning name

One hundred ideas later, a young otter rescued from the Clearwater Executive Golf Course has a name: Bogey.

The Clearwater Marine Aquarium's staff rescued the female otter, lethargic, dehydrated and apparently abandoned, on Jan. 23. As a fundraiser, the aquarium charged $20 to propose a name and received entries from as far away as Indiana and Texas.

Many were golf-related: Par, Putter, Sandtrap, Bunker, Brook and Birdie. Bogey was suggested by two people: Teresa Saluski of Largo and Sarah Hayes, a marine mammal and sea turtle volunteer from St. Petersburg.
