Rat Bastards

In the heart of Louisiana, an ongoing battle exists between giant 30-pound Nutria rats that are decimating the swamp marshland and the ‘Cajun Commandoes’ – a team of hunters battling to annihilate them. The devastation inflicted by the rats is of epidemic proportions, as there is no natural predator…

Four months a year, the State of Louisiana pays trappers and hunters $6 for each 7-inch Nutria rat-tail that they can turn in. These teams of hunters compete with each other to see who is the ‘Rat Bastard King’, as they take out up to 1,500 tails in a day. This is all about saving their home and getting rich.

This documentary series follows the ‘Cajun Commandoes’ as they scour the swamps for these elusive pests.
