Nuisance Otters

DKDDKD Posts: 375 Deckhand
I live on a saltwater canal in a relatively populated area. We have 2 otters in the canal that are regularly getting into my yard. They have caused some minor damage. They don't seem scared by my dogs, and have displayed some relatively aggressive behavior. I am worried that my dogs are going to get in a fight with the otter and get injured.

What are my legal options for removing the otters. A .22 would be very easy, but it would be illegal where I live and is NOT an option. Do I need a permit to trap the otter if I am just going to relocate it?

I already went to MyFWC. There is a section on nuisance animal removal, but the site has very little useful information. There are a number of different links that keep sending you in circles.
