We talked about the moose crisis here before. And before that. And last year. It's no laughing matter; the population has dropped by half as animals are dying for reasons not entirely clear (parasites, climate change or a combination of the two, says the DNR).
Maybe it's because I just re-read "Moby Dick" recently, but it occurs to me that the head of a moose kind of looks like a whale.
Anyway, no moose hunting in Minnesota this year. The DNR won't re-open hunting until and unless the population recovers.
