"More Bad News for Minnesota Moose"

"Minnesota's dwindling moose herd has a year off from human hunters in 2013, but that doesn't mean life for the big north woods critters is a walk in the park. Moose are still being hit hard by disease, injury and parasites, and they are still prey for four-legged hunters who don't need licenses".

"And there are still far more dying than should be.

Researchers studying calf moose in Northeastern Minnesota have so far found more than two-thirds of the young moose died during their first four months of life, leaving far fewer young moose than needed to sustain a healthy population."

John Myers reports for the Duluth News Tribune October 2, 2013.
