Vermont Initiates Three-Year Moose Study


ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. – The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is initiating a multi-year study to better understand the state’s moose herd. 

Moose across the Northeast are increasingly under stress from a parasite known as winter ticks. The ticks are becoming more prolific as spring and fall weather has warmed in recent years, causing some moose to collapse from blood loss or die from hypothermia after rubbing their insulating hair off in an attempt to rid themselves of the parasite.
