PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon Zoo is asking the public to vote on a rescued otter pup taking up residence there.

KATU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1HQFUvo ) that those interested can vote online for one week. The name options are J.R. Papenfus, after a creek in Lane County near where the pup was found, Little Pudding, after a tributary of the Pudding River, or Hobson, after a creek named for John Hobson.

Senior Keeper Julie Christie says they like to give river otters names based on local waterways.

The pup is in his second week of a month-long quarantine at the zoo’s Veterinary Medical Center.
