Also, they are fucking dead, which the article only reveals in a cryptic manner half way through.

The headline implies so as well.

I suspect Tiny isn't an Otter, either, but I don't have a problem calling them that.

And happily they're not fucking dead.

"The English pronoun they is an epicene (gender-neutral) third-person pronoun that can refer to plural antecedents of any gender and, informally, to a singular antecedent that refers to a person."
