    Ok so i saw a few recipes online for Nutria.
    you know? those big fat ugly as sin rat looking varmints that are good fro nothing but destabilizing river or creek banks, destroying vegetation and biting your kids at the park?

    welllll......

    apparently they are good for chillie to. i asked some of my freinds if they where in, and they all said Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    so i guess im eating alone. but where to find some of these little buggers?
    anybody have a clue?
    or better yet, anyone have a nutria problem?
    hehe i dont think anyone on this aprticualr forum weould have a nuttria problem for long but its worth a shot so to speak.
    ;)
    oh and also tips for curing their skins/furs as i plan on making some wintergear as well as some some stew chillie and sausage.

    Head out toward Beaumont and anywhere in Louisiana. I hit one in Port Allen that took out my A/C condenser, bumper, and lower radiator support.

    nope, ask Redneck, he knows the story. although if you check with Louisiana, they occasionally have bounties on Nutria due to the damage they cause to housing.

    Don't know that I'd be brave enough to eat Nutria, though I'm sure it tastes like chicken

    mmm chicken... I heard the other day on Discovery channel or a similar channel that there are several places that have issues with nutria and will let people kill them, just make sure its a nutria and not a Gambian Rat as they carry all sorts of nasty disease like monkey pox (found mostly in FL... so far)
