Now that most of the Great Lakes are covered with ice, does anyone know if wolves or moose have traveled to/from Isle Royale?

Unfortunately a wolf went the wrong way. One of the IR females was found dead over on the mainland, They are  tagged. It's sad as I was hoping some would go from the  mainland over to IR.

We can only hope otherwise I hope the government steps in and ships some wolves over to IR and up the population. They need some new blood over there.  As for the moose their population is growing and so there has been more and will be more damage to Isle due to over browsing.

The comment I read from the park service "they believe they have 5 years to make a decision".

5 years! Sheesh by then the moose population will really have gone overboard and the Isle will be greatly over grazed by them.
