Japanese River Otter Declared Extinct

After 30 years of not seeing the japanese river otter, scientists have declared it extinct. But, in 1999, scientists found droppings from the otter, and they believe that there might be hope for the  otter. If it is still alive, than it is in deep hiding. Some scientists have given up searching for it, but many haven't, so the search still continues.
