Moose in Missouri??
Hey guys, i had a guy tell me there were moose on his property in missouri. I didnt think this was true i just wondered if anyone knew for sure if there were moose or not in missouri.. sounds weird to me!

Where moose and whitetails occur in the same area, moose can pick up a parasite that deteriorates their brains. I've heard that some of these sick moose have traveled from northern Minnesota into Iowa before dying. Missouri is almost twice as far but maybe it could happen. Other option is it escaped from a zoo or something.

I doubt it, but I guess anything's possible!

..................I don't even think the St. Louis zoo has moose......they got polar bears, so there are polar bears in Missouri....

if it's wild, there is probably only ONE running around in the whole state. We have numerous elk farms in MO. I have two just an hour from my house.
now...we have had a WILD elk in Independence, MO before. I can't find a web article (was about 15-20 years ago).

I grew up in S.W. Mo. and there is a now defunct hunting ranch in McDonald co. which had all types of species, moose included. It is quite possible that some animals didnt either get killed of removed from property. I have been out hunting near the property and have seen Bighorn sheep, Muleys, etc. (pretty interesting sights for a place those things arent supposed to be).

There's a HF hunt in Bismark Mo..about 7 miles west of me...so it's possible.I know there's some big elk in there,cause i've done carpenter work all around there and seen them......wanting out.

This link has a lot of information: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/volunteer...brainworm.html
This paragraph might explain why it's not seen so far north:
The white-tailed deer is the normal host and is unaffected by the parasite. Severe neurological damage occurs in several species, including moose, caribou, elk, mule deer, llamas, domestic sheep, and goats. Brainworm is found only in central and eastern North America. It has not spread to the western part of the continent, even though whitetails occur in much of the West.
