Researchers: Minn. Moose Calves Dying Quicker Than Usual

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — State wildlife experts say our moose calves are dying at a faster rate than they should be.

Researchers in northern Minnesota say more than 60 percent of the young moose they tracked have died within the first four months of their birth.

The leading cause appears to be predators, like bears and wolves.

The DNR already suspended the hunting season because of a 35 percent drop in the population last year.
