BDN: UMaine helps state monitor moose mortality

The Bangor Daily News reported that the University of Maine is helping the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife monitor moose mortality in the state. According to the BDN, when technicians contracted by the department capture a moose, they “draw blood (which is later studied at the University of Maine), count the winter tick larvae, affix the GPS collar and weigh the animal with the helicopter before releasing it.” Yahoo! News shared the story.
