I used to work in Overlake near the the Skate King about 15 years ago and there were Nutria everywhere there was water. Weird how all of a sudden they are in vogue.
I would love rats if it weren't for their hideous tails.
I would recommend grinding up the hind-legs and adding a little beef fat to make nutria burgers. They're actually really good, a dude from rural Louisiana (Plaquemines Parish) made them for me once.
And, they are nutritious.
bet this family could use some tasty nutria since it was sent by god
I used to bullseye wamp rats in my T-16 back home, and they're not much bigger than 2 meters.
i've been wondering what i'd eat when gas is $7/gallon. glad to know it won't just be possum & eastern gray squirrel.
Pleez! You are makeeng the nutria cause the heart attacks!!

Heart Healthy "Crock-Pot" Nutria
2 hind saddle portions of nutria meat
1 tomato, cut in big wedges
2 carrots, sliced thin
1/2 cup white wine
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 cup demi glace (optional)
1 small onion, sliced thin
2 potatoes, sliced thin
1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
Layer onion, tomato, potatoes, carrots and Brussel sprouts in crock pot. Season nutria with salt, pepper and garlic to taste and place nutria over vegetables. Add wine and water, set crock pot on low and let cook until meat is tender. Cook for approximately 4 to 6 hours. Garnish with vegetables and demi glace (4 servings).
i grew up here, and can attest that nutria are quite tasty and their fur (yes i was a trapper in my youth) is quite good, and still popular in europe. a scoped .22 caliber rifle is all that's needed to harvest these giant rodents.
I've got to side with Vincent Vega on this one.
I have a better plan: create a Nutria/Poodle hybrid in a lab & charge $1000 bucks each. Introducing the POOTRIA.
YOU TREAD ON DANGEROUS GROUND, MR. BRENDAN KILEY. WHILE WE HARBOR NO SYMPATHY FOR THE HEATHEN NUTRIA TRAITORS, WE ARE ALWAYS WATCHING...FROM THE TREES...
