OTTERTAIL - The Ottertail otter statue may soon be on the move.

After 10 years at its "temporary" location just west of the Ottertail Home Center, a permanent home is being sought for the landmark critter.


Ottertail Lions Club members Jerry and Shirley Smith were present at the May 21 Ottertail City Council meeting to discuss the possibility of moving the otter statue. A decade ago, it was the Lions Club that raised funds for Vining artist Ken Nyberg to create the statue.
