Abstract:
Because of the superior quality of their fur, otters were almost trapped into extinction across the country. It wasn't many years ago that otters were extremely rare in North Carolina. Now, protected by strict game laws, the Carolina otter is sufficiently numerous again in the eastern part of the state to warrant an open season for trapping. Amundson discusses the otter's range, characteristics, food and breeding habits, management, general behavior, and having them as pets.

Abstract:
The screwworm fly attacked North Carolina livestock in some 80 counties in 1949 and caused the worst outbreak on record. Screwworms attack animals that have been injured in one way or another by laying eggs in the wounds. Hatched eggs feed on the host for a few days, causing lameness and other ailments. Jones reports on the screwworm damage to livestock and on the considerable damage that was done to the deer population.
