Get Rich Raising Nutria!

Wow! What a great idea! It says in this 1958 Popular Science ad that the price of nutria pelts is already almost equal to mink. And these exotic rodents breed like ... well, rodents! Women will always wear fur. What could go wrong? Nothing! Just look at that cool logo if your confidence is wavering. This is sure to be an exploding market for a bright, energetic young person.

That reminds me of the alpaca craze from a while back.

I saw a lot of nutria in the wetlands of southern Texas when I was there birdwatching. I hear they are not too bad for eating.

My step father trapped them along the creek behind the house in Kerrville, TX, near San Antonio. He considered them pests, "big rats" he called them.
