HOUSTON -- Two sea otters are responsible for causing an 80-minute delay for a Continental Airlines flight that was heading from Houston to Columbus, Ohio, on Tuesday.

The plane was scheduled to leave at 7:55 p.m., but it got stuck on the tarmac at Bush Intercontinental Airport after two sea otters stored in the cargo area got loose. 
Crews eventually got things under control, and the plane took off at 9:15 p.m.
