Otter fans float plan to bring sea otters back to Oregon coast

It’s been more than a century since sea otters were hunted to near extinction along the U.S. West Coast. The cute animals were successfully reintroduced along the Washington, British Columbia and California coasts, but an attempt to bring them back to Oregon in the early 1970s failed.

The Mid-Columbia’s newest commercial kitchen opens Dec. 1 in downtown Kennewick.
