That's good to hear. They let the nutria situation get out of hand down here; unless you were a professional trapper, or you owned land that was being damaged by them, you couldn't kill them, which was stupid; I would see several of them every time I went fishing down in the marsh. Now, it's just like the hogs up there - open season. The problem is the same, though - fast reproduction. At least the gators eat the nutria - I don't know if a full-grown hog has any predators besides us.

If a marketing campaign could be started, promoting "wild" or "free-range" pork, maybe a dent could be made in the numbers. I would buy some of those pork chops.
