Moose Rescue

In The Poacher's Son I try to depict some of the many strange jobs Maine game wardens are asked to perform during the course of their shifts. From today's Portland Press Herald comes this one:

Game wardens in Maine say a moose is back in the woods thanks to some human help it got after it broke through the ice on Moose Pond in the town of Bridgton.

Wardens say the bull moose was spotted about 1,000 feet from shore on Sunday after it had broken through the ice...

[They] were able to put a rope around the neck of the moose and break it a path through the ice to shore.

I could make any number of wisecracks about the moose being rescued from Moose Pond, but I'm not going to.
