A moose is seen near Isabella, Minn., in 2016. Minnesota's moose population, while steadily declining partly because of a parasite carried by deer, is a species of special concern, according to the DNR.

Minnesota's moose are among the 274 plant and animal species that a prominent environmental group says are in urgent need of federal protection but are on hold due to an agency backlog.

The Center for Biological Diversity said Wednesday it intends to sue the Trump administration over the backlog, claiming the U.S. Department of the Interior and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) are violating the Endangered Species Act.
