Minnesota DNR Proposes Update in Moose Status

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is highlighting concern about the state’s declining moose population by proposing a change in the animal’s status.

The DNR wants to list moose 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.

The DNR’s protection of an animal or plant begins with the “species of concern” designation.
