Re: so, they spent 2,142 per...
Yea...It's definitely not a novel idea. I remember hearing peeps talk about bounties on a lot of different kinds of pests. It works, especially if the bounty is high enough.
There'd be no end to the rednecks and hillbillies that would invade a space for 200 a nutria and the godvernment would get the job done at 10% compared to what they were spending.
The problem they might run into at those prices is somebody like me who might just start a nutria farm. Honest Injun G-man, I hunted these critters out of the field. I turned em loose from the breeding shed...into the fenced in field out back...ran em into a corner and clubbed em to death to save the 10 cents each for the .22 shell. 👍
