Seasons Of The Otter
First Aired Tuesday, March 03, 2009
Otters are so proficient at capturing the fish they live on that they have lots of time left over for play. And they seem to play with reckless abandon, sliding down steep canyons in deep snow and swimming under the ice in Yellowstone Lake. They submerge us into the lake to find strange underwater spires only recently discovered by man. Other creatures sometimes survive bitter winter seasons by stealing fish from the otter. Actually, they're pretty good at defending themselves, and this program catches some astonishing action between them and coyotes, eagles, beaver, and even an occasional grizzly bear. Seasons of the Otter is produced by Bob Landis and Dale Johnson, and presented by KUSM/MontanaPBS, MSU Bozeman.
