Moose population continues to decline
Minnesota's moose population continues to decline, dropping from an estimate of 4,900 in 2011 to 4,230 in 2012, according to the annual aerial survey by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
"Estimates from the survey and results from research using radio-collared moose both indicate that the population has been declining in recent years," said Mark Lenarz, DNR forest wildlife group leader.
