CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Biologists will be out in the snow again this winter monitoring New Hampshire’s endangered New England Cottontail population.

Officials with the state Fish and Game department will be checking areas with dense vegetation for rabbit pellets and tracks in the snow. They say collecting the pellets on the snow preserves the DNA in the pellets and allows for species and even individual rabbits to be identified.

Members of the public also are encouraged to report rabbit sightings to the state.
