Nunavut hunter falls through ice, makes pants out of a fox to stay warm

 


A crafty hunter from Sanikiluaq, Nunavut, made emergency pants out of a fox after he fell through ice over the weekend.

Well-known carver Jimmy Iqaluq, who is in his 70s, was hunting alone for polar bears on the southern part of the Belcher Islands Saturday when his snowmobile went through the ice.

Iqaluq was able to pull himself out of the water and tied his snowmobile to the ice in the hopes of saving it. He walked to a small island and, because the tide was low, he had to climb up sheer ice to get on land.
