The “Az-I-Wu-Gum-Ki-Mukh-’Ti” was much feared among the Inuit. The 19th century explorer E. W. Nelson heard much of this creature from the Inuit people and dubbed it “walrus-dog”.
It is possible that the creature was a walrus mistaken for it; however, the Inuit people know these animals very well. It may also have been a related species that has since gone extinct. Pinniped seals evolved from a land animal, it is possible an amphibious variety could have survived until the present.
