    WESTBROOK (WGME) – Maine's famous frozen spectacle is still catching people's attention.

    Thursday, a New Jersey man was spotted out on the ice disk, cutting into it with a chain saw.

    Christopher Angulo says he's not trying to destroy it.

    Instead he wants to carve a peace sign in it.

    He says he's been on and off the ice, and even put American flags on it.

    The 300-foot disk formed in the Presumpcot River last week, and hundreds have been to Westbrook to see it.

    Angulo says he is just out there to send a message of positivity.

    "I’m an arborist, I’m a tree climber, it makes me uniquely qualified to do this because I use chainsaws, ropes, I'm making a giant peace sign and I want it to spin around so bad, and create that visual for people to see of peace making the world go around in Westbrook," Angulo said.

    The city of Westbrook says it strongly discourages people from going out on the ice, but Westbrook police say there's no law against chopping river ice.

    They went on to say, unless the person is endangering themselves or another it isn't a law enforcement matter.
