Otters need more living space

Otters winning battle of wits

From the article:

In an admission that the slick-furred creatures refuse to respect boundaries imposed by man, authorities want to officially abandon their otter-relocation policy.

Yay for zombie otters!

After waiting for an otter to fall asleep, wildlife crews would sneak up beneath it with a propeller-powered craft manned by a diver and snare it in a net. The otter then would be flown in a chartered plane or driven hundreds of miles to a Northern California beach for re-release. Some died from the stress.

Total cost: $6,000 to $12,000 per otter.

Hm, this seems insane, but I may be failing to appreciate the vital importance of oyster farming to our nation's security.
Sorry, not oysters. It was sea urchin processing.
oh, well, if it's sea urchin processing that's a whole other story.
