Sea Otter Bounty

Sea Otter Bounty

FILE - A sea otter floats in Kachemak Bay, Alaska, in this July 1, 2003 file photo. Alaska state senator Bert Stedman, R-Sitka, is proposing a bounty on sea otters, the cuddly little marine mammals often seen by tourists swimming on their backs between cruise ships, sometimes munching on a freshly caught King crab. Stedman doesn’t see the otters as cute critters; he considers them as a threat to fishing beds and the crab harvest in Alaska. The Sitka Republican has introduced a bill in February 2013 that would have the state pay Alaska Natives, who are the only residents legally allowed to kill sea otters, $100 for every dead otter they bring in.
