Readying a mobile lab


Jeanna Lodel, left, and Kaytee Firnett prepare the mobile lab so they can process moose blood, hair, feces and other samples for further research on Jan. 30 in the Superior National Forest in Minnesota. The heated lab, a trailer owned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is towed to open areas where a helicopter can land and bring fresh samples from moose. Lodel and Firnett are veterinary school students working with researchers trying to determine why moose are dying prematurely.
