About:
A wide-ranging look at efforts to protect Louisiana from a giant swamp rat.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Louisiana has suffered from hurricanes, flooding, and oil spills, but nothing has been as insidious as the nutria. This giant swamp rat, known for its distinctive orange buckteeth, is prone to tunneling and eating plant roots, threatening the region’s fragile wetlands with erosion. This quirky doc follows fisherman-turned-bounty hunter Thomas Gonzales and other colorful Gulf residents, from hunters and trappers to furriers and chefs, as they try to defend their imperiled land from the invasive species.
