Minnesota DNR Wants Moose on Endangered List

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wants to add moose to the state's endangered species list. 

The moose population is declining in Minnesota, so the DNR wants to list the animal as a 'species of concern.'

The status wouldn't limit hunting. That would happen only if the moose moves up on the list from 'species of concern' to threatened or endangered status.

A revised endangered species list has been in the works for five years and could be finalized next year. The DNR wants to add 67 animals to the list.
