Doesn't Everyone.......


...butcher seals on their kitchen floor??

We went over to see my friend Karmen who was cutting up and ugrukchaiq, which means "young ugruk" (bearded seal).

We were really laughing becasue she skinned it head and all. She didn't know that you usually start cutting just behind the ear holes. She had to suffer some good natured teasing.

She took it in good stride and even cooked us some.

What are the PETA folks going to think? :) said...

A little warning about the content of the pictures would have been nice :-)

I'd have to say that I've never seen a seal being butchered in the kitchen.....a caibou, yes (thanks to you), but a seal no.

Good photos, again. Would love to know more about the cooking - I see mustard was served on the side? We had moose hind quarters cut up on the kitchen table :-)
