Nutria Dog Biscuits Chew Into New Orleans
by Mary-Devon Dupuy
Those lucky enough to encounter nutria in person know that these gnarly, orange-toothed swamp critters aren’t the most sympathetic vermin around. Not only are nutrias ugly as all get out, they’re an invasive species that feed on the vegetation of Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands, a rapidly disappearing and vital resource for everything from seafood to storm protection.
Krewe of Barkus Gets More Room to Roam
With the second weekend of Carnival parades upon us once again, it's time to unleash the Barkus on the French Quarter. The canine krewe started as a bit of a sideshow, but over the past 20 years, the burning desire for people to look at dogs and dress them up has resulted in a quick expansion. In the style of many krewes over the years, the parade is even starting to outgrow its initial cage. This year, the NOPD added 8 blocks to Sunday's parade route.
As the old adage goes, when dog bites man, it's nothing to see here. Man bites dog? Okay, now we're getting somewhere. The same kinda thing is true for cops. Cops shoot people, and it takes the FBI to blow the lid off. Cops shoot dogs, and there's outrage on the evening news. On Sunday, a cop killed a dog in Gentilly after receiving calls that the canine was becoming vicious and unruly. But the dog's owner thinks the NOPD man might've been a little itchy in the trigger finger. Loosen up, people. They have to get their rocks off somehow.
