I live on a lake and on our dock we have a big blue bucket in the water we put fish in until we clean them. Well we have an otter problem and they get in that bucket and eat them. We have put a lock on it but they still find a way in. We don't want to kill it so that's out of the picture. I don't know if it would fit in a coon trap but do y'all have any suggestions on how to catch it to relocate it or anything?
FYI it is likely more than one. We have them on our ranch in East Texas and those things run in packs. Good luck on trapping them, the only way I got them to leave was shooting half the group.
