    Nutria, I believe is a south american rodent, looks like a cross between a beaver and a muskrat in my opinion. Brought to the US to be raised for its fur back in the early 1900"s sometime and got released in the wild when fur farms went belly up back in the depression area (or so I understand). They are a big problem in the south. I lived in Washington State for a while several years ago and they were causing problems on the lower Columbia River and its tributaries. Dont know how they got to Washington.

    In 2017 we were flooded by Tropical Storm Harvey. I work for the fire department and we here housing our guys and around 200 national guard troops. The cajun navy guys came in and cooked for us. It was absolutely great nutria jambalaya. I would definitely eat it again.
