A brain-attacking worm is strongly suspected as a factor in the mysterious and steep decline of moose herds in the western part of Wyoming, wildlife biologists in the state said on Friday.

Moose have traditionally thrived in Wyoming, where hunters prize them and their antlers, which can span six feet. Seasonal moose sightings routinely back up tourist traffic at Grand Teton National Park near Jackson in northwest Wyoming.

But that well-known herd near Jackson has plummeted by roughly 70 percent since 1998, falling from 3,077 moose to fewer than 930, state estimates show.

Good info to remember.  There are many variables facing our wildlife.
