Multiple sources have now confirmed that the D6 bulldozer that sank into an unnamed lake north of Talkeetna last spring has been successfully removed from the water. The cat train that removed the dozer is returning approximately fifteen miles to Gold Creek before returning to Talkeetna.
The bulldozer broke through the ice last May while traveling to Stephan Lake Lodge. The operator, Donald Kiehl of North Pole, died in the accident.
