Mangitak Kellypalik was born in 1940 a few miles from Cape Dorset (Kinngait). His testimony includes information about an RCMP officer and Inuk constable attempting to slaughter his dogs in 1960. When he realized that his dogs were going to be shot, he acted with anger and his dogs were not shot. When the RCMP came back again, he was handcuffed, harshly reprimanded, and threatened by police officers because of the way he reacted when they had attempted to slaughter his dogs. The dogs were eventually shot by RCMP officers in 1965 while he was out of town. His dogs were not tied up, and were chased under his house and shot there while his wife and his children were at home.
