Study links Minnesota wolf population to moose survival


Dr. Shannon Barber-Meyer is a federal wildlife biologist on the Superior National Forest. She has done extensive research on wolves in Minnesota. She also is the co-author of a research paper published online this month in the journal Wildlife Society Bulletin that found rapidly increasing wolf numbers in northeastern Minnesota coincided with the rapid demise of moose in the region.

WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs spoke with Barber-Meyer about wolves in Minnesota and the recent findings reported in the Wildlife Society Bulletin.
