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.”
