Alaskan dog survives epic 150-mile trek across frozen sea ice

A one-year-old Australian shepherd returned to its owners in Alaska after more than a month apart, having undertaken an epic odyssey across 150 miles (240km) of frozen Bering Sea ice which involved a run-in with a mystery animal.

Nanuq’s owner, Mandy Iworrigan, lives in Gambell on St Lawrence island in the Bering Strait, and she and her family were visiting Savoogna, another community on the island, last month.
