This article reports on the increasing number of moose in New York. There are currently 500 moose in the northern part of the state, an increase from the estimated 50 to 100 moose a decade ago. Alces alces, or the North American moose, have moved from New England and Canada to New York. This event has surprised several scientists, including biologist Chuck Dente.
