Very sad how many species have gone extinct or been extirpated from Japan. Now that the countryside is emptying, it is time to reintroduce many of them.

Don't tell everybody! It's been living there in secret for many years. Now, it's gonna see every man and his dog going for a look.

In the '80s while fishing in a river in Nagano Ken, I saw a white otter. Must be a different kind. Anyway, Japan still has room for wild crits. If we can just keep the water clean.

How about that, very cool. Apparently in New Zealand we did have a Giant Otter(now extinct)

I guess it's more newsworthy to be filmed Alive than Dead.
