(CP) It's never been easy being a sled dog in the North, and snow- mobiles have made it even tougher. "I hate those damn said RCMP Insp. Hugh Feagan of Yellowknife. "Dogs have personalities. Even when they'd look back at you, you knew what they were saying." But even Insp. Feagan had to go along when the force cut out its dogs and joined the swing to snow- mobiles. In many Eskimo com- munities, the snowmobile has assumed the impor- tance of the car in the. South. Two- and three snowmobile families can be found in settlements such as Hal! Beach, pop- ulation 300. Many younger natives don't care about hunting and trapping and would rather race snowmobiles than drive dog teams. In addition, many sled Start the year right.

So huskies, whose life ex- pectancy in the Arctic snows has never been long, are being tied to trees and left to starve. Or they're being dumped on islands during the summer when they are of no use. In the Mackenzie delta communities of Fort MacPherson and Inuvik, if bylaw enforcement of- ficers aren't able to apprehend stray dogs they carry rifles to kill them. In Yellowknife, a city of there is no veterinarian, no humane society. While residents as grand and exotic a collection of pet dogs as in any southern city there's a kennel but no dog club. ONE DOG TEAM At Frobisher Bay, the largest community in the Eastern Arctic, there hadn't been a dog team for five years until Paramount Pictures purchased a team in Igloolik to film in the Baffin region. The movie company later sold the team to a Frobisher Bay resident and now the predominantly Eskimo community of 500 has one dog team. Throughout the North, there are only a handful of settlements that have more than a half dozen working dog teams. These are communities such as Igloolik with an estimated 75 sled dogs, Baker Lake 69 sled dogs and Coral Harbor 16 dogs. Some communities have only one or two teams because polar bear sport hunting regulations where southerners visit settlements to bag a bear require that the hunt be carried out with a dog sled. In terms of the ratio of snowmobiles to dogs, at Repulse Bay there are 60 snowmobiles and 62 sled Some individuals, such as Thomas Kakimut, a trapper in the Keewatin, are using both the snow- mobile and the dog team in their work. Kakimut uses the machine to get to his base camp, then relies on his dogs, without burning expensive gas, to get him around to his traplines. He also has the security of knowing that if his snow- mobile breaks down in the barrens as machines are prone to do he has the dogs for transportation.
