Posted Mon Dec 1 2008: from CBC News (Canada):
500 narwhals trapped by Pond Inlet ice: fisheries officials
When the trapped narwhals were first discovered on Nov. 15, residents had counted at least 200 of the Arctic whales, trapped in shrinking areas of open water, also known as breathing holes or savssats. But since the first discovery, fisheries officials say more breathing holes have been spotted. The department now estimates a total of 500 narwhals were trapped in as many as 20 breathing holes.... Hunters in Pond Inlet, a mostly Inuit community of about 1,300, told CBC News that the task of culling hundreds of entrapped whales has been daunting. They added that they are trying to harvest as many whales as they can with the limited amount of daylight they have at this time of year.
