West Seattle wildlife: Caution, otters (still) crossing


It’s been a while since we’ve had a report about one of Alki’s road-crossing river otters; Crispin Garrott saw that one near Duwamish Head around 11 pm Sunday. So we’re reminding you to be careful – as discussed here before, the otters have dens inland and cross the road to go looking for food, among other things. More than a few have been hit and killed. So, especially at night when you might not see them, be careful in the area.

    Having visited both the Aquarium and Zoo within the past couple of months made me realize that we hadn’t had an Alki otter sighting report in a long time.

    I hadn’t seen an Otter when I’ve been in the area but I’ll keep an eye out.

Sorry, comment time is over.
