Deer and Elk Family (Cervids)
Largest and heaviest of our native North American deer, moose are rapidly declining in numbers due to a number of factors other than habitat loss. Increasing numbers of white-tail and black-tail deer due to predator decline are introducing new parasitic diseases such as brainworm and liver fluke into already stressed populations of adult breeding moose. This cow was seen foraging in a pond near the Idaho-Wyoming border near Jackson Hole.
