This article discusses ticks and how they kill wildlife. As winters grow warmer in North America, thirsty ticks are on the move. A scientist, wielding his ruler, called out square-centimeter tick counts: nine ticks in the first square centimeter, seven engorged; eight in the second, none engorged; 28, four engorged; eight, none. This count would later produce an estimated infestation total of just under 14,000 ticks. The moose was bled to death by a tick infestation.
