2012 Otter Group RELEASE…
In March of 2012, we released a group of 5 NARO (North American River Otters) (3 males-2 females) on 6500 private acres near Winona, TX., and the second group of 5 (3 males-2 females) was released a day or two later on a different lake in the same area... 10 total!
It is very likely that most of the otters hit the Sabine River that runs in the center of the property as it flows downstream, and ended up in and around the Sabine River Bottom area. TPWD (Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept) and their team of managers / biologists working the area have kept an eye on the activity, reproduction, etc. of both groups.
