Global positioning system (GPS) collars have been deployed on adult moose (Alces americanus) and other ungulates to study various aspects of their ecology, but until the current study they have not been fitted to moose neonates. The moose population in northeastern Minnesota, USA, has been declining since 2006, and information on neonatal survival and cause-specific mortality are needed. We monitored hourly movements of GPS-collared females for indications of calving. During 2 May–2 June 2013… CONTINUE READING
