Very cool buddy. For a second I thought you were talking about the black cat. I'm like "those suckers are every where. "LoL
We have otters just north of us In the cold trout streams but they are mostly nocturnal.
that cat to close he be dinner I think otters will hold a dog under water

I love it! I see them on occasion but they don't stick around very long.

I was cross country skiing in a marsh a few years ago and saw a very odd shape in the show, it was 6 feet long (as long as my ski) about a foot wide then 3 paw prints. This pattern went on for about 1/4 mile.....never 4 paw prints, never 2. I then realized it must be an otter gliding on the snow. Sure enough, I followed it to a small muddy hole in the ice where it disappeared. I would have loved to glide along with him!!

Now this is cool. All I ever see here is muskrats. They're cool and all...but not otter or mink cool.
And they will steal all your bait.
i never seen the otters eat but one year a mink had her babies under a shed at the marina. She would have fish like two times her size . She drag them out the water and right under the shed was cool . She was one good provider I just imagine what a 3 foot otter catches

For years, they have raise mink in SE Idaho. Big farms of them like the Russians. Those things are fierce!! I hate to think what a full blown river otter could do!
