Those working to move a four-acre bog, which broke off from the east shore of North Long Lake near Brainerd and is still floating just off the shoreline of the lake's Legionville School Patrol Safety Camp, were cutting the bog into even smaller pieces Wednesday.
North Long Lake Association President Bill Schmidt said another effort to move those pieces will be undertaken Thursday.
Last week, volunteers from the North Long Lake Association and the American Legion tied the bog to boats and tried towing it away. But those efforts were unsuccessful.
They cut the bog into two pieces, but were still unable to move it. Then they managed to cut the bog into three pieces. But it has still remained in place.
The eventual hope remains to pull the bog away from the Legionville Camp beach, then turn it 180 degrees and move it back into its original place on the east shore of the lake.
