Otter trapping season over in Iowa

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Otter season is over in Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources closed the trapping season after fur-harvesters reached a quota of 500 otters.

The DNR says if a live otter is found in a trap, it should be carefully released and reported to the DNR.   They'll use that information to determine the otter population across the state.
