Road-killed otter 4/8

What a sorry end for this male otter found on Rt. 495 South; just before Rt. 3 exits. The site was along a narrow wet area near the Concord River abutting a housing development-- an unlikely spot illustrates the lengths of otter travel. I've only found 2 other such road-kills before...


  1. Poor guy didn't stand a chance. The traffic in that second photo illustrates pretty clearly what he was up against.

  2. Sad end for such a fantastic animal. At least it got off the road or some caring person laid it to the side to show respect even after death.
