Clashing Habitats

As Vermont’s moose population increases, so does the number of plants they eat, and the amount
of space they need. The number of black
bears and deer are also up, and wolves may be poised to return to Vermont
any day. How will the arrival of a new
predator affect other animals? We
explore these issues with Vermont
naturalist Sue Morse.

Also, we go looking for moose in the Northeast
Kingdom with an Island Pond hunting
guide, and he talks about how hunting and conservation can co-exist. Then, we continue our series of postcards
from Vermont towns, with a trip
to Groton’s annual chicken pie
