Moose GNP 1.315.jpg


Moose (Alces alces)

The largest member of the deer family, the moose towers above all others. Moose wander the woods undisturbed and keep to themselves. Numbers were higher in Northern Minnesota but deforestation, disease and human encroachment have lowered numbers. Moose also make their homes on the Northern edges of the Great Plains in North Dakota occasionally seen passing through. Moose hide is prized. Moose are strong and will put up a fight to protect against wolves.
