Whaling in Alaska

In this Oct. 7, 2014, photo, family members and friends of the Anagi whaling crew celebrate the capture of a bowhead whale after it was brought ashore near Barrow, Alaska. The celebration begins earlier in the town when a whaling captain radios to shore, “hey, hey, hey!,” a sign to all of a captured whale. From there, news spreads. By the time the boats and whale make it to shore hours later, much of the town is there to greet the hunters. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)
