The Muskrat as a Fur Bearer, with Notes on Its Use as Food

Description: "This bulletin is intended primarily to show the economic importance of the muskrat, or musquash, our most valuable fur bearer, and to encourage further legislation for its protection. Although injurious in some localities, it is for the most part an inhabitant of places unsuited for agriculture. Its growing value for fur and meat makes it desirable to preserve and perpetuate this resource. To this end the bulletin gives an account of the muskrat's habits as well as of its commercial importance and suggests the private utilization of ponds and marsh lands for an increased production of fur and meat." -- p. 2
