LITTLE MOOSE TOWNSHIP, Maine — A snowmobile trail groomer reportedly had a close call Sunday with an angry snowmobiler.

Sgt. Mike Gould of the Piscataquis County Sheriff’s Department was told that a trail groomer on Burnham Pond Road in Little Moose Township had a confrontation with a snowmobiler, but there was no assault.

Gould said he was told that the groomer and the snowmobiler had come to a bridge where they both stopped. The snowmobiler allegedly threatened the groomer, and the groomer grabbed a hammer to protect himself. A few seconds later, friends of the snowmobiler arrived and persuaded him to leave without further incident, the sergeant said.

The identity of the snowmobiler was unknown. printed on April 24, 2017
