A Red lake area trapper owes a vote of thanks to an MNR conservation
officer after becoming stranded in the bush.
The CO was on routine patrol on a remote lake north of Red Lake on
Sunday, when he noticed a set of snowmachine tracks and some abandoned
equipment on the lake. He followed the tracks, and finally came across the
trapper, whose own snowmachine had become bogged down in slush. The CO
helped the trapper free his machine and get on his way again.
The man was suffering from a mild case of hypothermia and frostbite to
his face because of his ordeal. The MNR says snowmobilers should be aware of
ice conditions and travel in pairs when those conditions are poor.
