Tenders 'for their imrchastr were asked from Canadian Packers, the hide and head of each animal to he returned to the Government. Competition for the animals was keen and many of the lead- ing provision concerns'throughout Canada were anxious .to secure the meat, so plentiful on these westernjilaius in the reign of the Kert Man, but now so rare.
