UNDATED (KDAL) - A pioneering research project to help determine why the moose population in the state continues to decline is beginning later this month.  The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will use the latest technology to study why the state is losing about 20 percent of adult moose each year.  The DNR hopes to capture about 100 moose to be fitted with GPS collars to track movement and some will get another device that measures heartbeat and internal temperature.  The 1.2 million dollar project is funded by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
