Long Description:
Moose Cave is a very narrow opening leading into a 45' deep and narrow flume through bedrock where water flows and temporarily disappears by this cave opening beneath a granite slab. The informational sign in the parking area recounts the legend of Moose Cave. According to the legend, a moose fell into the cave and became trapped. A hunter heard the cries of the moose, but instead of offering it help he shot the moose,removed him and ate him for dinner.
What's the Real Story?:
This legend actually sounds plausible. I can't imagine how a hunter could help a moose out of this predicament; and in true Maine fashion - why waste the opportunity. My guess is that similar encounters with indisposed animals are not uncommon. So, why let the truth get in the way of a good story?
