Pribilof Island Oil Spill, M/V Citrus 1996 Arctic Fox scavenges for carcasses (Album)

When oiled birds and marine mammals become oiled, their feathers and fur lose the ability to keep dry. As water soaks the animal, cold sets in and they will often go ashore tto attempt to get dry and warm. Predators such as these foxes will scavenge the carcasses and often become victims of the spill as well. These images were taken in March of 1996 on the north shore of St. Paul Island in the Pribilof Islands of the Bering Sea.
