This is an Otter (Lutra lutra) that I did in a swimming pose at one point I did quite a few otters as the numbers started to recover after better river conditions releasing… but now they are loads run over each year again this is sociably acceptable but it is not in the government’s eyes to mount an otter that have been run over.

I had one person collecting Otters for me and in his small area of Scotland there was 13-16 otters a year run over.

At time of writing Jan 2014 you can have an otter mounted buy a taxidermist if it is for scientific or educational purposes a licence will be needed from FEFRA / English Nature. It is a shame but when I now see one on the road I just leave it where the general public killed it.
