Moose and Ticks

Recommended Posts

I read about this a few months ago.  It's also a reason why Elk are doing well in moose country.  I guess the Elk groom themselves very well and it helps keep their tick infestation down?

Typical CNN.. kill the moose not the ticks... What a joke.. 

Don't think it's CNN but the wildlife department. 

Either way I agree. Kill the ticks. 

Maybe it's the agency's way to justify lowering the heard numbers. Could be they received backlash from the public for wanting to reduce the heard in the past, and now are using the ticks to their advantage?
