Not a person in sight...but evidence of humans are everywhere!
The sight of a animal that is chained up 24/7 with no affection is a sign that the savagery in humans is stronger than ever...time to evolve in this regard, perhaps.
No more chains!!

Human detritus is everywhere we go, and so many cities are built on the bones of animals. Who do you think wears the heavier chain, the dog or the human who keeps her?

Non-human animals are the slaves of our making. Set animals free and we will set ourselves free.

Great photos - the real Iqaluit that most people are embarrassed to photograph. Re the other comments, my dogs have their own slave/butler (me) - tough life.

As I am a slave to mine, Murray... though ultimately, it's the cats who rule! Thanks for your comments.
