Letters From Away is written by a Maine native Keith Michaud, who is now "from away" and living in California. It is about things happening in Maine and to Mainers. And he will throw in a story once in a while.
Karen Douglass of Orland rests with bandaged legs after being rammed by a young bull moose on Feb. 10. Grimley (white) and Wilbur (black and white) were two of her three dogs who found the moose and instigated the event. Douglass suffered an injured shoulder from the moose impact, another injured shoulder from hitting the ground, mild hypothermia and frostbite on her lower legs. She also suffered severe leg bruising, mostly from the difficult trip home without her snowshoes.
