too many dead nutria!

after katrina, everyone knows the potential risk to human life that each new hurricane threat can bring. but did you ever think about nutrias? no. you didn't. not until they start washing up on your shores by the thousands

Department of Environmental Quality officials say so far they've counted more than 5,000 dead nutrias on Hancock County beaches, but they say that number could top 10,000 before they all finish washing ashore. 
Hancock County faced a similar nutria problem after Hurricane Gustav. 
"If you're out here, it's a terrible smell," Garcia said. "As this heat continues, they're just going to blow up and pop, making it even more of a health hazard."
