Nutria bounty increased

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, November 2006:
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries has upped
the bounty on nutria to $5.00 a tail, trying to keep trappers active
despite fur prices lagging far behind the rising cost of fueling
boats and off-road vehicles. Paid for by the federal Coastal
Wetlands Planning, Protection and Restoration Act, the bounty
program “has removed more than 1.1 million nutria,” reported
Associated Press.
