The Minnesota DNR has started the second phase of its ambitious study to determine why the state's moose population is declining so rapidly. In a $1.2 million study earlier this winter, researchers attached high-tech GPS collars to adult moose. Last week, they began collaring newborn moose calves.
The moose had hung around town for about 10 weeks in the winter and early spring. Authorities believed they had finally shooed her out of town for good about two weeks ago. However, she showed up inside the city limits again this week, on Tuesday and Thursday.
A moose is no longer on the loose in town here. After spending about 10 weeks in the city limits, entertaining residents and frustrating authorities, the moose has moved — or, more accurately, been pushed — out of town.
Researchers using GPS trackers and transmitters to find out what's causing the decline of northeastern Minnesota's moose population are getting some early results that show wolves are to blame for some of the deaths.
After a dramatic drop in the moose population from last year to this year, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Wednesday that it will not offer a hunting season this fall or consider future seasons until the population recovers.
There won’t be a moose season this fall in northeast Minnesota, the Department of Natural Resources announced today. Based on results from a recent aerial survey, moose populations in the northeast have accelerated dramatically, the DNR said.
