One of the scrumptious treats the pack enjoyed: parts of caribou that had been hunted. They enjoyed the legs - easy to carry around and they got to eat the hooves! Pirate and Pistachio (he sometimes came around the pack) loved the legs and tried to get me to play fetch. Pistachio found it very fun to try to rub the leg on me to get me to throw it for him. I only threw it a couple times - wearing mittens and holding onto the hoof!
Pirate, triumphant over the caribou leg he had found. "Are you proud of me?!"
Aurora, Joy, and Pirate snoozing after snacking for the afternoon. It's hard work...!
Pistachio enjoying the caribou after trying to have me play fetch. He made sure to keep looking at me to make sure I was aware of the deliciousness he had right in front of our door.
Pistachio's look of shock after Pirate snatched the leg away...How dare he?!
I never saw a live caribou, only the remains. We came across hides and bones that were strewn across dirt patches alongside a road. It made me think of how more of the remains could have been used to make things - bones into knife handles, jewelry or decor of some kind, the hide for parts of clothing. The dogs and wolves ate the bones and took what was needed, I'm sure.
