Panhandle otter trapping quota reached

TRAPPING -- The Panhandle Region's River otter harvest quota of 15 was reached at 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game said. 

The otter season for the entire region closes at 10 a.m. on Friday, according to the rules requiring the closure 72 hours after the harvest quota has been met.
Trappers will be allowed to keep otters trapped within this period provided their personal quota of two has not been reached. 
Any otters trapped in the Panhandle Region after 10 a.m. on Friday must be surrendered to IDFG for a $10 reward.
