Searching resumes this morning for a 32 year old woman who may have spent the night in deadly weather conditions between Mount Adams and Mount Madison.
Fish and Game Advanced Rescue and volunteers from Mountain Rescue Service searched the area last night after a missing hiker activated a personal locator beacon registered to Kate Matrosova of New York City. But after searching through deep snow and scrub trees in an area identified as the probable last known location of the beacon, rescuers turned back.
New Hampshire Fish and Game laid out a proposal Wednesday that would ban the use of chocolate to bait bears. This follows four confirmed bear deaths. Officials say the animals overdose on the theobromine in the sweets.
Those against the measure say limiting chocolate would be a better alternative to banning it.
The Fish and Game Commission voted to move the proposal forward. The public will have a chance to submit their concerns.
Fish and Game officers rescued two Ohio hikers from a trail on Mount Washington Thursday night because the pair didn’t have flashlights.
The husband and wife, Robert Scanlon and Candy Neville – both in their mid-60’s - from Shaker, Heights Ohio, rode the Mount Washington Cog Railway to the top of Mount Washington, Fish and Game Lt. Wayne Saunders said in a news release.
Then, they decided to hike down on the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail.
But Scanlon began having knee pain on the rocky trail, slowing their descent and it got dark before they could reach the bottom.
