ROCKLAND, MAINE (WBZ-AM) -- It was supposed to be a quiet day at the beach in Maine, but it turned into a strange nightmare, as a woman is bitten by an otter while collecting sea shells.

While collecting shells on a beach with some kids  in Rockland, Maine on Wednesday, Laurie Nevins of South Carolina was taking pictures of a river otter that came out of the water, and started running around. Suddenly the otter bit her.
