Moose herd



Today, the Minnesota Department of Natural Recourses (DNR) announced that the states moose population is in serious trouble and they are listing the moose as an animal of concern.

There are probably fewer than 5,000 left out of a once healthy population of over 20,000. They also announced though that there would be a season next year to hunt moose. Apparently the way they manage the herd is to hunt it to near extinction and then worry about how to save them.
