Hmmm, will be interested to see how this turns out. Have you eaten Nutria before? They really thrive up here in Oregon and are a nasty rodent.....like Bear, I've never heard of anybody eating them.....be careful of parasites

I didn't realize these animals were in the northwest - I thought they lived only in the marshes of the south. Anyway, here in Louisiana there are actually some eating establishments that serve this meat. I have been making a variety of deer sausages and thought I would give this nutrea a try. I will post pics of the sausage when i pull it out of the smoker.

Don't seem to be much different than our PA Muskrats:

Back in the 70s, I liked Muskrats. I had 4 ponds & a creek on my property, and the Muskrats were bringing $7.50 each (adults only---NO kits). You didn't even have to skin them.

The one year I caught 140+.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA....they look like tiny canadian beavers!
Our PA Beavers have big wide tails, but our Muskrats don't.

I used to have a bumper sticker that said, "I Ate Beaver at Tombstone Inn".
