How to Make Your Own Moose Lodge in Montana Author Matt McIlroy, Flickr/Bryce Siegel Montana’s moose is no longer hunted.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources announced Tuesday that it has declared the population of the iconic animal extinct.
The designation comes a year after Montana banned hunting in its state, following a spate of attacks on people and animals that claimed more than 100 lives.
The move comes after the state lost nearly two dozen moose in the past year.
The Montana Department of Wildlife and Parks’ announcement comes as the state’s moinets population is down to fewer than 2,000.
Officials have struggled to find the remaining moose populations because the animals are often found in remote areas.
For the last 10 years, Montana has lost more than 20 percent of its moose population, and only a handful of hunters are allowed to kill the animals in the state.
The announcement comes just a week after Montana’s first moose hunter was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the attack that killed the endangered species.
He has been on the run since July after the attack.
The man, a 64-year-old male from the city of New York, has not been charged in the moose killings.
According to the Montana Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, there are currently more than 3,500 moose on the state of Montana.
That number could go even lower in the coming years, as more hunters take advantage of the moobie’s unique habitat.
The moose are native to North America and are believed to be one of the only mammals that have a backbone, and are one of only two species that can tolerate cold temperatures.
Montana’s governor has declared a national moose management program to combat the loss of moose and protect other wildlife.
Montana is the second state in the U.S. to ban hunting for the species, following Montana, which banned hunting during the Great Yellowstone Ecosystem Restoration Program in the mid-2000s.
In the aftermath of the Great Storm, the state reintroduced hundreds of thousands of mooses into the wild in a project that began in 2012.
The program has been controversial because it brought in hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue.
Montana residents have been critical of the program, saying it took too long to reintroduce moose into the state and that the animals were killed to satisfy hunters’ desires.
Montana was one of several states that banned hunting for moose during the 2016-2017 season, but the state later allowed hunting again, after the Montana Department
