Floating Bogs
When a floating bog has broken free from the shoreline by natural causes, and becomes grounded elsewhere on private or public property, the property owner(s) where the bog becomes grounded is/are responsible for removing the it if they so desire.

Removing and/or transplanting a bog requires a DNR permit issued through your local DNR office. The DNR will provide advice and approval regarding where to relocate the bog on the lake, and how to stake it down.

Pushing a bog to your neighbors' shoreline under the dark of night is not very neighborly, nor is it legal. A permit is required. Contact the DNR for approval and instructions.
