moose with ticks

blog_illl122-15

近年美國明尼蘇達州的駝鹿數目急促下降,發現原來是蜱蟲所害!本來生活在寒冷地區的駝鹿,以往都不受蜱蟲困擾。但由於地球暖化,令蜱蟲有機會在駝鹿身上生長,再加上駝鹿習慣獨自生活,所以不會有同伴幫忙除蟲,令牠們要受折磨致死。
recently years, the population of moose has dropped steeply in minnesota because of winter ticks! moose used to live in a cold environment, but with globe warming, climate changed and allowing the winter ticks to grows on moose. moreover, moose are solitary animals, so there isn’t any member of their family to help with removing the ticks, and they ended up suffering to death.
