Big news in Minnesota today. Researchers here have been trying to determine why Minnesota’s moose population is suffering such a rapid decline. Down more than 35% in recent years, even worse in northwestern Minnesota. And today — with all appropriate gravitas — I learn from my television news that some moose have been killed by wolves.
Before we call open season on wolves, let’s remember that killing moose is what wolves do. Now, to be fair, no one suggested we hunt wolves to protect moose. Not yet. But it strikes me that this finding is not news at all. I am going out on a limb, but I am guessing that wolves have been killing moose in Minnesota for thousands of years.
But just in case you missed it, we got it covered. Tune in at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00.
