The Northeast Kingdom is home to numerous species of wildlife. Even though the animals are at the mercy of the elements, they have endured over time in numbers both up and down depending on several circumstances. The weather and especially the ability to find food are large issues affecting them. They do have warm coats of fur and other mechanisms to keep warm through Vermont’s harsh climate, but deep snow pack can create some issues.
