In 2006, Jin spent nearly a month on the run.

The great escape began when Jin, Java and Jeta discovered an unsecured nesting box in their Auckland Zoo enclosure.

Digging behind it, they then tunnelled under two walls and scaled a 1.8 m barrier to freedom.

This is the true story of a feisty little otter who escaped from Auckland Zoo.

For several weeks, New Zealand was gripped by otter fever as Jin was spotted in the suburbs, on beaches, and on islands in the Hauraki Gulf.

The mischievous little otter made world news and captured the hearts of a nation. Jin's Great Escape is her tale.
