Ghost Moose

Recently moose populations have been dropping in the northern United States and even in some parts of Canada and Alaska. This is mostly due to shorter, milder winters allowing for more ticks. Up to 160,000 ticks can be found on one animal. These moose are called Ghost Moose, as the ticks cause them to lose huge amounts of weight and fur and eventually kill them.

    I really wish there was a pill or something that animals could take to kill all ticks on them. I wish we could give it...
