Abstract
  • The nutria is a large, semi-aquatic rodent native to South America. Nutria were introduced to the United States for their fur. After a boom in nutria ranches during the 1930s, the animals escaped or were released from fur farms in the Pacific Northwest, Louisiana and other states, where theyare now considered a threat to native wildlife, wetland habitats, water quality and human health.
