Ghost Moose

Some people call them “ghost moose.” And no one is sure why.
That can lead to exhaustion and death.

“If the heart stops beating, it sends
a text message to our phone that says, ‘I’m dead at x and y coordinates,’” said Dr. Butler.

And moose contribute to the economy.
In British Columbia in April, a moose wandered into the flower section of a Safeway market.

The next few months may provide insight.
“It’s up to the public,” said Ms. Rines, the biologist. “We could kill more if we want healthy moose.”
