The Winnipeg Humane Society's emergency response team has had some pretty odd calls over the years, but likely nothing otter than one it received Friday afternoon. 

The agency responded to a report of an otter living under a downtown dumpster.

Nihal Bhullar, a 20-year-old University of Winnipeg student, called authorities after stumbling along the otter over her lunch hour.

Bhullar was walking back to class when she noticed a small crowd around a garbage bin between two apartments on Balmoral Street, across from the university's east doors.

Bhullar thought she had misheard the man who told her there was an otter under the garbage.

"He showed me a video and I was like, 'Wait, what?'"

'He needs to be saved'

Eventually the crowd dispersed, and Bhullar found herself alone with the otter.

"I thought, 'I've got to call someone because he clearly does not belong here,'" she said.

"He's far from home; he needs to be saved."

Bhullar was joined by Dawn Williams, who lives in the apartment at 391 Balmoral St. next to the otter's chosen dumpster, and the pair waited for help to arrive.

Apartment Tips: 5 Tips For Responsibly Signing a Sublease

By this point, it isn’t even news anymore that rent prices in major cities are through the roof. Over the last ten years, the number of young adults who live by themselves has decreased significantly to a measly 9%. Plus, almost half of millennials say that they plan to move again the upcoming year. All of this combined makes for an interesting rental market, specifically in the realm of subleasing (PS – if you’re trying to rent out a room, find a new roommate, or sub-lease your place, you can do that on PadMapper now).

Whether you’re a first time sub-leaser or trying to find your fourth place in two years, you can never be too careful when making your move. Here are a few things to remember while going through the process…
