MOOSE IN THE GREATER YELLOWSTONE REGION

EMERGING THREAT TO MOOSE

Fifty moose died last winter in Jackson, WY. This is nearly one-quarter of the population in the area. One possible cause of these deaths could be winter ticks. Moose across North America have been plagued by winter ticks and die-offs are happening in other states such as Idaho, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Vermont; devastating herds at an alarming rate. In the last ten years, nearly 60% of Vermont’s moose population has disappeared. If this continues, local moose populations could be extinct in ten years.
