If they come from the south, they don't have a chance getting past Somd

Every once in a blue moon, there is an escapee. They don't last too long on their own.

Nutria are large rodents that look like beavers with long, thin tails similar to muskrats. Nutria may weight up to 20 pounds and reach about 24 inches from tip of nose to tip of tail. Nutria have thick brown fur and orange front teeth. They are designed for aquatic life, with webbed feet and eyes, nostrils and ears located high on their heads to enable them to expose as little of their bodies as possible when breathing at the surface of the water.

Nutria are native to South America but have become established in 16 states in North America. Nutria were introduced to Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in the 1940s, where they were farmed for fur. Currently, nutria can be found on the Eastern Shore of Maryland as well as in the Potomac and Patuxent rivers on the Western Shore.
USDA has been working on them a LONG time.
Few pockets left.

A good friend of mine works for the USDA and killing nutria is the main part of his job.
Yes, they are still in Maryland.

DNR introduced coyotes to take care of the nutria.

It worked so well, now there are coyotes in every county, and are considered invasive. SO you can hunt those year round as well.

The real invasive species are humans. killing those is against the law. Most places. Although if you are short of coon meat, they taste great schezuan style. I also recommend the double cooked ones.
