One of our most controversial stories of 2011: Can fur from an invasive species be considered "eco-friendly"?

I think Nutria should be use for fur and keep regulated in these swamps to keep numbers at a control level. Not to wipe them out completely. Like beavers and otters, nutria can destroy crops which people eat and swamps and like where fish and other animals live. I have trapped beavers and have seen the damage they can cause to the envoriment which you all say you love so much. It you loved the world so much you would see that these animals are only doing hurt not help. Take the beaver, in the 1930′s the beaver population was very low but now the beaver population is over run, and that is why we trap them. Not for game or for money, because you don’t get much for fur any more, but for control and to stop them from spreading their poison, and from damaging more habitat that you all say you love so much. That is why I think we should be able to keep trapping and keep their fur.
