An Eskimo hunter who found himself trapped in an ice cave by a ferocious polar bear used his ingenuity to save his life.
Muk Luck the Eskimo was hunting along the polar ice cap when he was unexpectedly suprised by a huge polar bear.
He dropped his spear and knife as he dashed to the saftey of a nearby ice cave with the snarling beast breathing down his neck.
Once inside he was safe from the bear, but he was now completely defenseless.
He feared that he would starve to death waiting for the persistant animal to to leave.
As night fell, he had to relieve himself.
He dropped his seal skin clothes and proceeded to deficate on the floor of the cave.
Once he was finished doing his business, he was amazed at the size and extremly pointed shape of his feces.
He realized that if it froze hard enough he might be able to use it as a knife and kill the bear with it.
He left it on the floor to freeze during the night and went to sleep.
Early the next morning as the sun was rising, he picked up the feces and was relieved to see that it had frozen hard as a rock.
He crawled over to the opening of the cave and saw the polar bear a few feet from the entrance sound asleep.
Without any hesitation he leapt from the cave with his poop knife and stabbed in into the top of the bears head burying it deeply in it’s skull.
The animal was killed instantly, he never knew what hit him.
When Muk Luck returned to his village and told everyone what happened. they all laughed at him.
They didn’t believe him.
So Muk Luck took them to the bear and showed them.
Muk Luck’s son, Gluk Muk Luck, couldn’t believe the amazing feat his father had accomplished.
“Look and see the knife of feces in it’s head!” He cried. “My father tells the truth!”
Muk Luck was carried back to the village on the shoulders of his people.
They left the bear where it was despite the large amount of meat it would have provided for the small village.
Even though they were starving, they didn’t want to eat it.
