I will be doing heavy duty rabbit mesh, and electric, and an out turn at the bottom as the ground around my lake is so hard an otter will not dig through it. Unfortunately the contours of the lake and trees will be a bloody nightmare but I don't care if it takes all summer I'm gonna bloody do it.

My place is fenced, I currently have them biting through the wire!

Im in the process of replacing all my mesh with a thicker guage to help with the problem.

What sort of fencing is in place though?? The otter fencing I have seen has a loop of babrbed wire at the top and the mesh and footings are dug back of that makes sense, so of an otter/fox etc does dig straight down it wont get anywhere

Frenzy is your water fenced? Or is it a water that cannot be fenced? I have just been on Facebook talking to some lads whose waters are getting nailed and they have fencing up!

yes.....so if you can help...PLEASE do so..

this thread should be every anglers number 1 priority

I appreciate fishery owners etc are reluctant to inform that otters maybe a problem, but if we keep our "problem" quiet, what chance to we stand...?

If the distressing evidence of wildlife deaths is brought into the public domain.. such as photos of birds/ducks etc, being attacked surely this will be a help in the argument for control.
