Station of the Raven IV:

Following the Hunter

Ravens often keep company with hunting animals like wolves and polar bears. The birds wait for an opportunity to feed on the remains of a deer or seal killed by the larger animal.  “Leftovers again” for dinner does not seem to be a problem.  (The arctic fox also trails the polar bear for the same chance at a potluck feast.)


The Eskimo are said to watch where the raven flies, as the bird could lead the way in their own hunt for polar bear.
