GREENVILLE - Maine researchers announcing Wednesday that they've begun a 5 year study on the state's moose population.
The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is looking to better understand survival and reproductive rates.
Biologists say a trained crew will be using helicopters and nets to capture and collar female moose and their young in and around the Jackman and Greenville areas.
The collars will be equipped with GPS, tracking moose movements. It also transmits a mortality signal -- notifying researchers a moose has died.
We'll have much more on this study tomorrow at 6 on ABC 7.
