    Hi all, I shot a 600lb cow in zone 3 last Weds. When I was cutting it up I noticed a few what appeared to be little white parasites in the meat. Researching this I found out it is called moose measles " taenia krabbia ". They are tapeworm larvea. They are harmless to humans. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this in their moose meat.
  2. Yeah its by the droppings of wolves mostly.
