Caribou

Hi HWW,

Last July I was travelling up the Maguse River near the community of Arviat NU, when we came up to a set of rapids. Just above the rapids were a few caribou. When we landed on their side of the river, the caribou quickly tried to swim across the river, just above the rapids.

Well, needless to say one of the caribou didn't quite make it across and swam right down the swiftest portion of the river. Its funny we don't often see animals make mistakes, and she wasn't harmed so everything was ok. Here's the picture.

Thanks,
