"Here we have the moose out on the ice, so exhausted and cold that she stands long enough to have her picture taken. She subsequently disappeared in the forest and is believed to have lived happily thereafter despite her very trying experience.

~Roland T. Patten, Custodian of Historical Views, 1929"
