... that the average weight of moose carcass is about 200 -250 kg, our estimate of the rate of consumption in 1-1.2 elk per year (2-5 % of the total elk population) is consistent with earlier studies done by other authors. Figure 1 shows the change in the number of moose and wolves in the Sverdlovsk region and the ratio of moose / wolf population densities. As could be seen from the graph, the popula- tion of wolf slightly lags behind changes in the number of moose. ...
