CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s very first moose biologist is getting ready to retire after 30 years.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/2dQbwvq) when Kristine Rines started, New Hampshire didn’t have a moose hunt. One of the reasons she was hired was to determine if it would be feasible or sustainable.

One of the projects she’s helped to oversee is the collaring program, by which she gathers data on moose mortality and productivity. Rines says she hires a team of “Moose Wranglers” each year to attach the collars.

Ticks are a well reported problem for moose in the northern parts of the state. Rines says brainworm is a problem in the south.
