Minnesota moose population decline appears to have leveled off

DULUTH, Minn. — Northeastern Minnesota’s moose population dropped some during the past year, but it appears to have leveled off after the big declines of a decade ago.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reported Thursday that its annual winter moose estimate came in at 3,030 moose, an 18 percent drop compared to 3,710 moose in 2017. The agency said the decline was statistically insignificant.
