Get To Know The Destructive Giant Swamp Rats Of Louisiana


For those of you that don't know, Nutria AKA Myocastor coypus, are large semi-aquatic rodents indigenous to South America. The original range included Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. In the 1930s, nutria were actually imported into Louisiana for the fur farming industry and were foolishly released into the Louisiana coastal marshes. These swamp rats feed particularly on wetlands plants. These little devils have also caused extensive damage to Louisiana coastal wetlands due to their intense feeding activity.

This is where our Rat B*stards come in. Deep in Louisiana, six "Swamp Commandos" wage an epic war against giant, 30 pound swamp rats that are eating the land out from under the Gulf Coast's forests, farms and homes. Each battle is an example of bayou ingenuity at it's best as these American patriots use dynamite, night vision, molotov cocktails and questionable tactics passed down for generations to outwit the monster rodents, save their homeland and earn thousands of dollars a day in the process.
