Too bad that the nutria is an animal that cannot be used for human consumption, as governed by the interministerial circulars. For this reason, the 42-year-old was denounced for trading in harmful food substances. According to reports from the military, the bartender had two nutria carcasses in the chest freezer, alongside other untraceable foods and products intended for serving to customers.
