Spy in the Snow viewers in TEARS minutes after show starts for one reason

Spy in the Snow viewers were left in tears just moments after the wildlife show started.

The wildlife programme, narrated by David Tennant, showed the plight of animals in their wintry environments, with the ups and downs caught on cameras which were disguised in the snow,

But it was the first segment of the show, focusing in on otters and how they acclimatise to cold climates, which set viewers off as they showed a mother otter and her pup.

Sadly, the winter was not too kind to the otters, as they were in imminent danger when the young otter fell into freezing water, and was separated from his mother.

The oncoming blizzard then threatened the pup even further, and viewers were distraught to think the poor animal could die in the freezing weather.

But there was no reason to fear, as the mother managed to find her baby and viewers were relieved, with some admitting the drama was almost too much for them to bear.

One fan said: "i can’t bear the tension. Less than 10 mins in and I’m shouting at the telly! #SpyInTheSnow"

Another viewers, who said they were close to crying, added: "#SpyInTheSnow OMG only 10mins in and I thought I was going to be crying. Fantastic programme Brilliant animals. No sadness please"

A third continued: "I really can’t cope emotionally with baby otters lost in the freezing water. #spyinthesnow"

Another admitted they were afraid of the "sea-otter-cub-in-major-peril" but were relieved to see the mother had saved her pup and brought him back to safety.
