Moose collaring taking place in New Hampshire

CONCORD — About 45 moose cows and calves are being collared in the coming weeks during the third year of a six-year study of moose mortality and productivity in northern New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the University of New Hampshire have contracted with Native Range of Elko, Nevada, to collar the moose.

Collaring of dozens of moose is being done in Maine.

The Fish and Game Department says residents of Success, Berlin, Milan, Cambridge, Dummer, Millsfield, Second College Grant, Wentworth's Location and Errol may notice a low-flying helicopter during the collaring activity.

Crews will use net-guns and tranquilizer darts to capture the moose so they can be collared. Blood and other samples collected will help evaluate the health of the moose.
