Wolf and the Sea
A Haida Legend
Once a man found two wolf pups on the beach, he took them to his home and raised them.
When the pups had grown, they would swim out in to the ocean, kill a whale, and bring it to shore for the man to eat.
Each day they did this, soon there was too much meat to eat and it began to spoil.
When the Great Above Person saw this waste he made a fog and the wolves could not find whales to kill nor find they way back to shore.
They had to remain at sea, those wolves became sea wolves (Orca).
