Eat it! Wear it!

Laura McKnight of has a funny story about TDM's favorite critter....the nutria, and the popularity of nutria fur coats. Well, "popular", that's according to nutria fur dealer S.P. LaRussa and the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (DWF). (LaRussa proudly tells the story of wearing his coat to the Saints/Vikings game and claims it garnered more attention that the Saints themselves). According to the article these coats are so popular Nutria Furrier, Louis Pitre, has sold up to 20 coats over the years. Wow! But, the DWF isn't giving is actively promoting the benefits of nutria fur on their website AND they maintain, which has delicious sounding recipes like "Heart Healthy Crock-Pot Nutria." and "Stuffed Nutria Hindquarters." Mmmmm....
