I killed one in Quebec back in ’06. I didn’t notice it right away, but after a day of hanging, the ticks were crawling off him in sheets. Lots of different species too. Nasty.

I understand that biologists are thinking that the parasite load from ticks is the limiting factor in the moose’s southern range limits.
