Scott Darling, Wildlife Management Program Manager for Vermont Fish & Wildlife is the featured speaker at this year’s Hogback Mountain Conservation Association Summer Meeting.  During the 19th century, moose had pretty much vanished from the then-bare hillsides of Vermont.  When the forests regrew in the 20th century, moose gradually made their way back to the region.  You may have noticed an uptick in the moose population in the early part of this century, but have you noticed the recent decline?  What’s happening?  Bad news: ticks and other parasites.  Can such small creatures bring down an animal as big as a moose?    Memorial Hall, Wilmington, VT.Filmed by Janis Chaillou edited by Em Richards
