Gene they do eat them. Nutria is a red meat, but it supposedly tastes like rabbit or dark meat turkey & someone said cleaner than chicken.

I've never seen it on a menu anywhere but here is a recipe
Nutria Sauce Piquant

1 cleaned nutria or 2-3 pounds critter meat (such as gator for Florida and pork for Arkansas) of your choice
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup green onion tops, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
3-5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup dry sherry
1 can (14 oz.) diced stewed tomatoes
1 can (10 oz.) Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
2 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. flour
Cajun seasoning mix

Surprised nobody eats 'em. They must be nutritious, given their names, no?

I mean, it's not like they're called poisonias or anything...

Thanks guys! To me it looks like a giant guinea pig with a tail.

They can have 4 liters a year (1 to 12 at a time)& start when they are only 3 months old. They do terrible damage to weaken the levy system around New Orleans. One good thing that comes out of the hurricanes is that it helps to control the nutria population. You can find pictures on the internet of them washed up on the beach shores and they make quite a clean up problem.
