When it was just humans suffering with tick born diseases we were told that we were crazy. Now that the moose are endangered something must be done.
In a vast section of the Maine Wilderness
there were one hundred and forty-two (142) moose found dead according to a recent article in the Bangor Daily News (December 2, 2011). These apparently healthy moose are found dead covered with ticks which points to the astronomical increase in tick population, and fuels the raging epidemic of Lyme disease and other potentially fatal tick born diseases.
