    moose stuck in a pond? Hancock Pond?

    Has anyone seen/heard of a moose that fell through thin ice and got stuck on a pond? I got a report from a friend that rangers were heading in to "Hancock Pond, which is near Lilly Pond"? I don't know of any Hancock Pond, but the rangers were at the Sawyer River Trailhead, so I'm thinking it's Sawyer Pond. Is the boggy area behind Lilly Pond called Hancock Pond?

    Thanks

    When I took a hike last May to Wachipauka Pond there was a moose submerged in the water near the shore with part of his body sticking out. It appeared to me this was a recent death. Given the location, I surmissed he fell through thin ice.

    I'm happy to hear that the rangers are trying to help this poor fellow on Hancock Pond.

    They may just investigate and not do anything. As with the young moose that was on Owlshead slide, they are likely to let "nature take its course".
    The heart of the journey is in the path not the peak!

    Oh yes, the report I got was that the rangers had no intention of interfering with nature.
