DULUTH -- The goose wore a bulging necklace of ice.

The bird was exhausted, sitting on the ice of Superior Bay about

30 to 40 yards off Rice's Point beneath the Blatnik Bridge on Saturday morning.


"It was horrible," said Randy Hanzal, a conservation officer with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. "The ice block was so big he couldn't lift his head off the ice."
