Wandering balloon wends way from Worcester to Canada

There’s a strange trophy hanging today in a Canadian hunting camp hundreds of miles from Massachusetts: a balloon that escaped from a cluster of its fellows at an event at Becker College in Worcester.

Kevin Daley, 54, of Hanwell, New Brunswick, a physical education teacher at Fredericton High School, found the balloon while he was deer hunting with his 19-year-old son and a group of friends who are former physical education teachers. The group was about five miles from the nearest habitation, in a spot only accessible by four-wheel drive vehicles.
