I was fishing the Hocking last night and saw something that I can't say was 100% an otter, but I can't say it wasn't, either. I've been fishing the river along campus for over 20 years and it's the first I have seen anything like this. It was definitely too big to be a muskrat, and I really don't think it was a beaver. It was moving with more agility and acted like it chased something up into the shallows at one point across the river from me.

Any confirmed sightings in the area?

Over the last 5 or more years I cant remember a year I havnt seen some. Always see a few throughout the year duck hunting. Seen a few at clendenning and Piedmont also while fishing. I've only ever trapped one. It was a unintentional catch in a beaver run.

We've got 6 of them out in front of our house. Mostly see them in winter bc they love to play on the ice.
What county? "Southeast" doesn't mean the same to everyone, I guess. I don't think of anything close to, let alone north of, Interstate 70 as "SE." I'm down in Athens County.
