While normally mortal enemies, when food is plentiful polar bears in the Stregaverse sometimes get along quite well with seals. The result is the unfortunate situation this seal hunter finds himself in.
Either he'll be pulled back up and find out what it's like inside a polar bear, or released to slide unstoppably down the icy slope into the waiting gullet of a hungry seal. He doesn't look favorably on either option but then, they aren't asking his opinion on the subject. 83
