    I think the key phrase was non-lethal. Not sure where you get killing from.

    It is pretty obvious that there are other far more damaging predators - all of which are non-indigenous and mainly avian - which need dealing with way before the poor otter! IF Otters are too densely populating parts of a river then perhaps transport the surplus to other parts. I will not be signing the petition on the basis that it seeks to deal with a minor problem before dealing with a major one...seals entering and travelling far upstream to find a salmon or ten to eat because their kin have decimated the salmon on their return, and this whilst avian predators kill the salmon on its journey to enter the salt water.

    I'd happily miss a salmon (only one mind you) for the sight of an otter.

    Sorry, not for me.

    Salmon anglers in general welcome the sight of an otter or 2 as it is quite a rare occurrence so I think you might be barking up the wrong tree in looking for support on here.

    I see an otter most years sea trout fishing and although I think YOU ******* OTTER - that's that pool **@!~d then - I carry on and even if I catch a fish, it's always the otter that stands out from the evening.

    I like otters.

    They keep the mink away.
