The North American Innuits: Commuting with nature?

The last woolly mammoth to have lived in North America, according to the Innuits, was named Kachputinuik, an Innuit word meaning, "second school-bus." Elders of the Ikklicht clan tell that the surprisingly docile beast could always be counted on to give the village's children a ride when needed. In fact, they joke, he was more reliable than the village bus driver, who was eventually sent to an Alaska state prison when a crystal meth lab was discovered in his igloo.
