The exact cause of the decline remains subject to debate, but experts cite climate change as one of the main factors.
I just listened to a scientist talking about this on coast to coast and he said that it doesn't get as cold as it used to so the parasites aren't being killed off as much. He also said they are finding moose with 10,000 ticks on them, so it can't be brutally cold.

That's some of the most incredibly naive garbage I've ever read. It's the brutal winters and the herds being to large that cause the massive winter kill. Anyone familiar with wild herd management knows that.
Had they allowed the herds to be thinned, a far larger share of the herd would have survived and been a lot healthier. By not allowing that they cause a larger kill and weaker animals at the end of it.
We've just had 17 years with zero warming and extra brutal winters in that area the last few years. The NYT's agenda is pretty obvious I'd think.
