When two Ishpeming men went into the woods near Silver Lake, they hoped to get a few pictures of a moose, but what they got was much more than that.
Kevin Bureau and Larry Grigg observed a moose that had fallen through the ice.
They tied a rope around the moose's antlers but the moose's estimated weight of 900 pounds was too much for two men.
Luckily four snowmobilers arrived and the six men were able to pull the moose from the water.
"We cut the rope soon as we got it out of the ice in case he was mad, but he was so exhausted he just didn't do anything, so I went back out and tied him back up and then we pulled him about 75 yards closer to shore," said Grigg.
Grigg and Bureau say the ordeal lasted about five hours.
When they went back the next day to check on the moose, it was gone into the woods.
