The seals are killed by shooting them with a rifle,
brought back and butchered by the hunter on the sea shore.
The seal was divided up into entrails/liver/meat etc. which
were taken away in plastic buckets or large plastic bags. The
skin was tied to a rope and thrown a few feet offshore where
it formed a floating disc with the blubber (fat) side down,
presumably to help clean off the blood and prepare it for whatever
the next step in the process was to be.
