A nutria like this one was seen in Wal-Mart

The last thing one expects to see running down the aisles of Wal-Mart in Abbeville while shopping is a nutria. But according to a lawsuit filed this week, a nutria called “Norman” is what Rebecca White saw in an aisle.


Randal and Rebecca White of Abbeville hired Anthony Fontana to represent them in the lawsuit.


According to the lawsuit, Rebecca was in the grocery aisle shopping on Oct. 11, 2008. Her basket was full of food when suddenly and without warning, a large nutria came from behind the Coke rack and ran straight towards Rebecca, the lawsuit said.


Rebecca, fearing for her safety, pulled the shopping cart towards her to protect her from the nutria andas she did, the cart rolled over her left foot causing her to stumble and causing her to suffer an injury.


Wal-Mart’s employees came to assist her and told Rebecca that, “she had an encounter with Norman” a name the employees had given the nutria, the lawsuit stated.


Rebecca was transported to Abbeville General by Acadian Ambulance for treatment.


The lawsuit state that Wal-Mart and its employees are negligent. The lawsuit said Wal-Mart did not: 
• Warn her of the nutria prior to her entering the store. 
• Did not take steps to protect her from the nutria. 
• Did not warn her that she is shopping at her own risk because there is a     wild animal loose in the store. 
• Did not attempt to capture the nutria.
      As a result of the above, White suffered:
• Pain, suffering and mental anguish.
•Fear of being bitten by a wild animal causing a panic attack.
• Painful disabling injury to her back and foot.
• Interference with her daily activities.

Someone needs to come out with some king size sticky pads to trap those, don't think regular size rat stickies are big enough.

Saw a program last night that said they're becoming far more common, were sited in New Jersey headed for ideal living conditions in and under New York. And boy do they have some big teeth!!!!
I heard tell that nutria are a delicasy in south america and parts of the U.S.
Maybe the way the economy is going we are going to need more wild food sources. Read an article the other day about people catching squrrels and pidgeons to eat.
I know what we can call nutria. Obamahog.
Remember the hooverhog during the depression?
