Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Spring 2019 Announcements
Continued success with the Gray Wolf introduction has reduced the predation by the alien species of wild hogs that was decimating the native turkey and quail population along with other ground nesting animals in the Park.
Park officials have also announced the success of the re-introduction of moose into the Park. This re-introduction was done two years earlier when the Gray Wolf came back to the Park, but was not publicized for fear of harassment of the moose by Park Visitors. Early counts of baby moose indicated six baby moose were born late this winter. The eight cow and two bull moose originally came from the wild population of Maine and most closely fit the genetics of the moose that originally lived in the Smoky Mountains chain of the Appalachians when the area was the exclusive home of Native Americans.
Of the original ten moose from Maine, six of the cows were located with calves. One either did not breed or lost her calf. The bull moose of the species is seldom seen except during breeding season. Their movements are almost secretive. One was not located during the last count and the second bull apparently spends a great deal of time in Cherokee at Harrah’s Casino, playing Black Jack and various slot machines.

I thought about that but it sounds like something very plausible the government would do. With the exception of Moose in the Casino of course.

Sorry guys. We try to put some sort of story together each year. Last year the gray wolf was re-introduced to stem the rise of wild hog population and folks bought it. Some times one can fool their own selves

I have no problems with this at all. The joke is on me and I am still smiling.

Well, the Red Wolf has been re-introduced here in the eastern part of NC (Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge) and I've seen elk walking down the middle of the road outside a casino in Cherokee so................................
