Moose hunt lottery to be held June 11 in Kittery
More than 55,000 people apply for 2,140 permits available this year.

... The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife says the annual moose permit lottery drawing will be held on June 11 at Kittery Trading Post.

State biologists recommended that permits be cut by 24 percent to help preserve the moose population and meet public demand to view the animals in the wild.

That reduced the number of permits to 2,140. More than 55,000 people have applied for a permit.
