CHOTEAU, Mont. — Across North America — in places as far-flung as Montana and British Columbia, New Hampshire and Minnesota — moose populations are in steep decline. And no one is sure why.

Twenty years ago, Minnesota had two geographically separate moose populations. One of them has virtually disappeared since the 1990s, declining to fewer than 100 from 4,000.

The other population, in northeastern Minnesota, is dropping 25 percent a year and is now fewer than 3,000, down from 8,000. (The moose mortality rate used to be 8 percent to 12 percent a year.) As a result, wildlife officials have suspended all moose hunting.

Here in Montana, moose hunting permits fell to 362 last year, from 769 in 1995.

Thanks for sharing, newsbot poster.
(news about Montana moose hunting permits... good old Anything section :rolleyes:.)

So there's fewer mooose, huh? Guess we won’t be needing so many of these:



Everyone around here knows someone who knows someone who crashed into one of these massive car destroyers and didn’t live to tell about it. I love animals – including big old moosies – but driving at night or early morning with them lurking along the highway, watching cars, is admittedly kinda eerie. I bet there's like five sitting back in those trees; there's probably fewer everywhere else 'cause they all moved here.
