Deer and Moose Impact on the Quabbin

Ishani Shrestha, Nguyen Ha, and Risalat Khan

In the mid 1980s, a trip to the forest surrounding the Quabbin reservoir hardly gave away that the forest with its towering trees and flourishing ferns was being “invaded” by white-tailed deer. With their natural predators like cougars and gray wolves removed from North-East United States, with hunting prohibited and with human intervention that enabled them to find food sources in agricultural fields and gardens, the deer population in this region saw a steady incline since the establishment of the Quabbin forest in the 1930s.
