Drawing on NP data, study finds wolves might be best way to regulate moose, deer populations

New research suggests wolves are more effective than humans at culling moose in a way that improves the overall health of their population — an argument that could bolster calls to keep the predators in the wild.

While human hunters may eye healthier prey, researchers at Michigan Technical University found wolves seem to selectively target animals suffering from genetic diseases like osteoarthritis — helping reduce the prevalence of those diseases in the animal population.
