[Photograph 2012.201.B0956.0040]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "When fully grown the coypus, or as it's locally known, a nutria, is about the size of a beaver. Local owners of nutrias, like Leonard Stoecher of Nicoma Park, insist that the herds of rodents give manifold rewards in return for a home and kind treatment. Nutria fur is expected to replace mink as a fringe benefit for poor working girls, for example. Princess Grace Kelly Rainier is alleged as the owner of the first nutria jacket produced in this country."
