Eugene Ipkamak’s testimony includes information about the loss of his dogs and some DEW Line workers near Hall Beach. Eugene mentions that both of his lead dogs were shot by a man (whose nickname was Isumataq) while he was picking up material and food at the DEW Line dump. He recounts how this authoritarian person made things difficult for the Inuit by shooting their dogs, burning a shack near the dump and preventing the cook from giving food to the Inuit. He tells of how he lost the rest of his dog team during a hunting accident due to bad weather.
