Mating and First-season Births in Interstate Transplanted River Otters, Lutra Canadensis (Carnivora: Mustelidae)


Abstract:
River otters were transplanted from North Carolina and Maryland into the West Fork River of West Virginia during February and April, 1987. Birth of young and mating by the released otters occurred within two months of release. This represents the only known occurrence of birth during the same year following transplanting.
