    This situation is very serious to our moose population.  Hope they can find a remedy by asking the big questions.  Save the moose!

      It’d be great if they could find a way to eradicate it, but once a parasite is in the system they are there for the long haul.  Bringing in other species does harm to natives as unintentional as it may be, there are far reaching ramifications, and in this instance who would of thought about it.  Stop the spread of them now so you don’t have to deal with the problems later.

    If these worms are found in the moose killed during hunting season, does this have any impact on the meat we are eating from the moose? Can it affect humans also?

    The chickens may be coming home to roost. There was a huge controversy about deer farms about 20 years ago for just this reason and other diseases that could possibly jump the fence. I hope it doesn’t take another 20 for them to find the cause and go through the “jobs” argument if they do in fact find a connection.
