Sample text

They directed much of their rhetoric to dispel the idea that otter behaviors were to blame for declines in wild fisheries: According to the things I have read, they (the DOC) were trying to say that the otters were eating up all of the game fish that people were out there trying to catch. Well that’s not the reason, the game fish are just being over-fished and they don’t look at the . . who knows, maybe it’s environmental because the streams are polluted and stuff. It’s not because of a bunch of little otters.

This quote, taken from a pond owner’s letter to DOC, described the otter as a thief in the night, “They [otters] are repeatedly robbing our fishing baskets. Last fall a family of 5 of these vermin robbed us of 65 fish in 3 successive nights” (Citizen letter to DOC, February 15, 2000). ” It appears logical that the otter’s consumptive behaviors, which were perceived as excessive, were a passport to negative constructions about their motivations. Thus, otters were no longer wildlife, but became “thieves” or “vermin” classed with other offensive and objectionable people and animals.

Newspaper articles were systematically gathered from two metropolitan newspapers, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the Columbia Daily Tribune, and one rural newspaper, The Houston Herald. Articles referring to Missouri otters were collected for the period of 1990 to 2000. I collected non-newspaper documents by making requests for information; I also accessed the archives and clipping files of agencies, organizations and individuals involved in otter issues. Approximately two hundred documents were analyzed for this research.
