Hard-headed Louisiana fisherman Thomas Gonzales doesn’t know what will hit him next. After decades of hurricanes and oil spills, he faces a new threat — hordes of monstrous, 10kg swamp rats. Known as “nutria”, these invasive South American rodents breed faster than the roving squads of hunters can control them. With their orange teeth and voracious appetite, the nutria are eating up the coastal wetland that protects the town of Delacroix Island from hurricanes.
But the people who have lived here for generations are not the type to give up without a fight. Gonzales and a pack of lively bounty hunters are hell-bent on saving Louisiana before it dissolves beneath their feet.
It’s human versus rodent. May the best mammal win.
