Mandy Iworrigan, Nanuq’s owner, who lives in Gambell, Alaska, and her family were visiting Savoonga, another community on St Lawrence Island in the Bering Strait, last month when Nanuq went missing along with the family’s other dog, Starlight. reported the Anchorage Daily News.
Starlight showed up a few weeks later, but Nanuq, which means polar bear in the Siberian Yupik language, was nowhere to be found.
About a month after Nanuq’s disappearance, people in the town of Wales, located 241 km from Savoonga, on the west coast of Alaska, started posting photos of a lost dog on the Internet.
“Dad sent me a message and said:
She activated her Facebook account to see if it could be her dog. “I said:
Nanuq’s journey will probably forever remain a mystery.
“I have no idea why he ended up in Wales. “Maybe the ice moved while he was hunting,” Iworrigan said.
The dog was flown home on a chartered flight carrying athletes for the Bering Strait Youth Olympic Tournament.
Except for a swollen leg with large bite marks from an unidentified animal, Nanuq was in fairly good health.
