Gentle Giant - Otter's Paradise in Capercaillie County

 (10)
51min2018ALL
Compared to its fellow summits in the Alps, the Oetscher is not very high: in fact less than 2,000 meters. But among the gentle slopes of western Lower Austria it really is a giant, with shoulders broad enough to bear the last of the Alps' virgin forests, the country's coldest plateau where temperatures fall to -50, the oldest trees in all of Austria and her very own Grand Canyon, the Tormauer.

It was good, but what irks me is again as in other nature shows hunters want to kill the otters off for eating what they are suppose to eat. Planet earth needs to be renamed planet Stupidz. In Europe eagle owls, wolves, lynxs, fish eagles etc. are being killed cause humans claim they are eating their food. Until humans started eradicating animals never was seen a single species on the verge of extinction due to an animal eating what they are suppose to eat. Hunters who claim this are...Stupid! It's peoples over doing anything that is depleting food sources, species are dying out for medicines. And true where's the otters?, I don't care about Austrian BBQ's. Alot of these European "nature" shows have too many people in them. I want animals, not humans!

Good doc
Verified purchase
Nicely done documentary with a lot of nice nature photography. The narration/narrator was good and easy to listen to. The story, the progression through the seasons flowed smoothly. Overall a good documentary for nature lovers. One small point - there was not about otters to make the title accurate. Three of four minutes about the title animal is deceptive and misleading.

I really didn't know much about this area before watching, but I'm going to put it on my "bucket list". The photography is amazing and the narration informative.

A lovely film; a quality series. I like to watch something upbeat and relaxing before bed during the workweek and these movies fit the bill.
