"This picture, with the other three on this page, constitutes an unusual group. We have a cow moose which has broken though the ice and has evidently spent some hours in a fruitless effort to escape. it is known that Skowhegan people were concerned in the incident, but at present we are unable to say where it occurred.

~Roland T. Patten, Custodian of Historical Views, 1929"
There are a series of four images about this Moose: 8981, 8982, 8983, and 8984.
