There was a short time ago that one could count 50 moose on this open without trying.

Lots of moose in Newfoundland. Wolves hunted to extinction although some Labrador wolves have been seen. Wolves are now protected on the island.. I am guessing to control moose populations as there are a lot of car/moose collisions. It is clear that if moose are to recover, the wolf cull should continue and some balance restored.

Crappy to see.
I was talking to a wildlife biologist who was studying what moose eat and sending poo samples to the USA for further analysis and he said the majority of their winter time food shown in their poop was sub alpine fir- aka balsam- they eat the needles and ends of the trees of them..

These are eating Arctic Birch, Willow and hay out of my stack yard. Nearest balsam would be 40 km from where they are. Bios sure get funny ideas at times.

I've always wondered if moose would think they had hit the jackpot big time
were they to wander into the massive blueberry fields all over the Fraser Valley.
All those succulent tops neatly in long rows at the perfect height for browsing....

Dave, they have found that in the prairie grain and alfalfa fields.

Go where there are few if any predators and you will find game.
