Moose killed in collision

Outdoors Writer/Photographer

According to DNR wildlife biologist Sam Jonas, a yearling bull moose was struck and killed by a pickup truck on State Highway 47 south of Mercer Thursday, June 12, at about 10:45 p.m.

Jonas went to the scene early Friday, June 13 to retrieve the moose. The moose wasn’t salvageable, but was to be be tested for brainworm and chronic wasting disease.

The brainworm is a parasite that affects elk and moose, but not whitetail deer.

Jonas said there have been confirmed deaths of elk in Wisconsin from brainworm, but very few. It is something the DNR monitors.
