    In todays market a small otter's pelt goes for $175, up to an extra large $325. Are you sure you want to relocate it. If you take it to a taxidermist you should get more for it. At those prices you can replace some of the fish you lost. Where there is one, there are more.

And then poisoning the otter with a fish. Normally I think the animal rights wacos are the nut jobs, but reading this thread I can see them using BYC down the road to document and justify their cause!

    Sorry you feel that way. I do agree with you about the poison, but I will clean kill any predator after my critters. I have gone to all the necessary precautions to protect them, only that always doesn't work. If you will go back over my posts, you will find that I treat the human predator with the same treatment as some wild predator. So I guess the animal rights wacos will leave me be.
