Moose population wanes, researchers study why

Don’t be surprised if you spot a moose wearing a collar. It’s not a pet but part of a new study of the Granite State’s declining moose population.

New Hampshire’s moose population has dropped dramatically from 7,600 to 4,400.

Fish and Game veteran moose biologist Kristine Rines said her division is teaming up with the University of New Hampshire to put tracking collars on nearly 100 moose cows and calves to study how long they live and to get them soon after they die.
