Reforestation of the state was the major factor allowing for the reintroduction and expansion of the bear population, and that expansion is expected to continue. in 2007 it received 2,000. "**"Report bear sightings to the Wildlife Division, at (860) 675-8130. In Massachusetts, three or four moose are hit by trains each year and about 15 motor vehicle collisions with the animals occur, although in some years there have been as many as 50. Loss of farmland to forests is thought to have reduced the population since the 1930s, when New England cottontails were still thought to outnumber Eastern cottontails. "**"Never attempt to feed or attract bears. In the 1970s the price of bobcat pelts rose so much that state officials became concerned they would be overharvested and reclassified the bobcat as a protected furbearer, with no hunting or trapping seasons. One Massachusetts environmental official estimated there were about 1000 moose in Massachusetts. Hammonasset Beach State Park has many of them; in the early evening, 30 to 40 can be found along the entrance road. State policy is not to remove bears unless the area is urban; the agency seldom relocates bears and only does so within Connecticut, since no other state will accept them. * Gray Seal ("Halichoerus grypus") — occasionally seen in Long Island Sound but usually lives farther northee also* Fauna of Connecticut* List of Connecticut birds* Flora of Connecticut* Long Island Sound for an extensive list of various species* List of Massachusetts mammals* List of mammals in North America* Mammals of New England* List of mammals* List of regional mammals listsNotesExternal links* [http://www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?a=2723&q=325726&depNav_GID=1655&depNav=| Wildlife Web pages at the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection Web site], Fairfield County has the highest deer density in the state.

Otherwise, DEP officials will usually try to tranquilize the animal or harass them into a nearby woods (sometimes by banging on pots or forming a line to try to scare the animal away). Another possible reason for the decline of this species could be the loss of areas with suitable ground cover, which protects the animals from predators. )Opossums (Order "Didelphimorphia", Family "Didelphidae")* Opossum (Didelphis virginiana) — common in wooded areas, farmland, drier areas of wetlands, rural areas and in some other habitats in the state; came to Connecticut from the south in the early twentieth century, a movement likely helped by its attraction to human-created food sources such as crops and trash, although it eats just about anything, including carrion. Other factors are the mixture of young and mature forests, milder winters, and fewer predators. Moles (Order "Lipotyphla", Family "Talpidae"):* Eastern Mole ("Scalopus aquaticus") — common in the state; usually found in fields, lawns and wooded areas that aren't too wet; much less prevalent in higher elevations in the northern parts of the state* Star-nosed Mole ("Condylura cristata") — common in wet or moist soils near water, less common in upland areas that are moist; apparently active at ground level during the night (when wildlife expert Geoffrey A. Hammerson found 583 samples of food items in a sample of barn owl pellets in central Connecticut, 24 of them were star-nosed moles; none were eastern moles)* Hairy-tailed Mole ("Parascalops breweri") — somewhat common in well-drained areas in northwestern part of the stateBats"):The state has eight species of bats and at least one may now be extinct in the state.Because some bats have rabies, the state Department of Environmental Protection advises on its Web site: :"If a bat has bitten or scratched a person or a pet, or is found in a situation where exposure cannot be ruled out, contact the DEP Wildlife Division at (860) 424-3011 or DEP Emergency Dispatch at (860) 424-3333 for advice.

From 1989 to 1991, they were reintroduced from New Hampshire and by 2004 were established in northern Connecticut.
