Moose on the Loose!

Diary Entry 3

The moose grazes as she walks away.

    "The moose appeared to be in very good shape, and probably weighed about 900 lbs. She was initially caught in Michigan last winter, and made her way into Wisconsin in May. Mike Weinfurter, Wisconsin DNR pilot, has been monitoring her movements ever since. She has been occupying a regular home range area of about 20 mi2. We found no evidence that she had a calf.

    The new radio collar should be good for another 8 - 9 years. We should be able to see if she goes back to Michigan over winter, or decides to stay in Wisconsin."

Wow! It sounds like they had a pretty exciting day. If you're up in Forest County, keep your eyes open for a moose on the loose and watch for their tracks.
