Kulusuk - Seal Hunt Butchery - East Greenland - 2

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.
