Antarctica Dogs - Huskies - Bringing Back the Dog Food

This may look very gory, but it was the best way of getting food for sled dogs in Antarctica. Crabeater Seals are very numerous, estimates are difficult to arrive at as they cover huge regions of Antarctica at a generally very low population density, there are around 15 million of them - every other seal in the world is a crabeater seal.

Because they are so widely and thinly distributed, crabeaters were never targeted by sealers unlike other seals that come together in large dense groups during the breeding season.
