The nutria is one of the several reasons south Louisiana is disappearing into the Gulf of Mexico. They eat the vegetation that holds the soil in place.

Correct. 15 million nutria have been exterminated since the bounty program was put in place.

To add to Henry's post:

These hunts are not new.

Their breeding is out of control

They burrow in natural levee's causing more erosion.

The meat was once tried as crawfish bait.

The meat is a delicacy in France, but not here.

Alligators love em.

The Chesapeake Bay marsh areas of southern MD and the Eastern Shore were getting destroyed by them. DNR went into an all out war on them and now have them pretty much eradicated... Still some, the new tactic to hunt out the hidden remaining is to catch and release some (called Judas) with location beacons... social animals that seek out their buddies. Follow the signal and home in on those colonies. DNR appears to be winning.

| never heard of these and had to look ‘nutria’ up. Are people (also) trapping these for their fur? Of course, I never heard of fur coats made from their skin, but I used to trap muskrat when I was young and sold them (the entire unskined carcass) for a dollar apiece (good money in the early 1960s) for the fur, I assumed.

Nutria?

Isn't that a granola bar or something for old people?

Just find a way to merchandized these water rats to the sock-heads and yuppies.

In Belize they are known as Gibnut and considered a delicacy. The yuppieyakars (the cute people who go on eco kayak trips in poisoned rivers and banana plantations sprayed with nasty stuff and are BSd by the guides as organic) are treated to a "local" meal at the outpost restaurant and served GIBNUT.. aka Nutria.

One might consider changing the name of the NUTRIA to make it more palatable. Then it could be marketed as jerky or cold cuts or such.
SWAMP SNACKS.

In some parts of Southern Mexico it is called TAPASQUILA (SP.. but the pronunciation is correct) A friend went down there about 20 years ago to "ranch" Tapasquila. While the meat is good, the sight of the animals pre packaged is not attractive. A deterrent to purchase.

"Are people (also) trapping these for their fur?"

When we lived in New Orleans, my wife showed me a nutria fur coat in a store. I can't say for sure that they were trapped, but the fur was nicer than I expected.

I also heard that at one time Jefferson Parish Sheriff's officers were shooting nutria for target practice. It makes sense to me but apparently some people were upset.

Hmmm... look suspiciously as if they might be related to beavers which are causing a mess around here. There is less hunting for beavers and they are spreading like wildfire, multiplying faster than they can be eliminated.

And what do you hear??? Oh, but they’re so cute.

Yeah sure!

I’ve seen one swimming in the lake behind our place.

And I don't think there’s such a thing as one of these.
