A presidential sendoff: Singapore’s presidential office guards close road for otters to cross

Talking about furry culture, there is no such thing as “you cannot get furry outside the fandom.” A recent incident in Singapore proves it.

On March 10, a family of 16 otters appeared outside the Singaporean presidential office, or the Istana. They wanted to cross Orchard Road – a heavily-used road.

Seeing this, the Istana’s security guards quickly moved to close the road. That is so the otters can cross safely to the other side.

The videos went viral on social media.

That prompted Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to write a Facebook post. He thanked people for making sure these animals can coexist safely with others in a city environment.

Quoting one TikTok user who also filmed the same incident from a bus, “I thought the President was leaving the Istana; it turns out to be another group of VVIPs.”


总统的“送行”:新加坡总统府警卫关闭道路让水獭通过

谈到兽圈文化,所谓“你不能在兽圈之外体验毛兽之乐趣”的说法并不存在。最近在新加坡发生的一件事证明了这一点。

3月10日,一个由16只水獭组成的家庭出现在新加坡总统府外。他们想穿过乌节路——一条使用率很高的道路。

看到这一点,总统府保安人员迅速采取行动,关闭了这条道路。这是为了让水獭能够安全地穿越到另一边。

这些视频在社交媒体上被疯传。

这促使新加坡总理李显龙在Facebook上写了一篇文章。他感谢人们确保这些动物能够在城市环境中与他人安全共处。

引用一位在公交车上也拍摄了同一事件的TikTok用户的话说:“本以为是总统出府,原来是另一群超级贵宾”。
