POST-MORTEM TEMPERATURES OF MOOSE CARCASSES
Temperature was recorded hourly for up to 24 h post-mortem for forequarters and/or hindquarters of 18 moose (Alces alces) killed at approximately 11 months of age. Hindquarters cooled more slowly than forequarters. A hindquarter with the hide on cooled more slowly than a hindquarter with the hide off which was held under otherwise comparable conditions. Quarters of moose which were skinned on snow cooled more rapidly than quarters skinned on wood.
