THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE 711 NATIVES DRIVING GEESE INTO THE NET-TRAP "A flock of geese is surrounded by the hunters in their canoes, while on the shore the nets are spread like traps, open toward the water. The geese are slowly driven toward the nets and finally chased inside" (see text, page 717). THE SLAUGHTER OF THE GEESE After the flock has been driven into the net-trap, the net is tightened and the killing begins. The birds are grasped below the head and whirled in the air, thereby breaking their necks. Afterwards they are buried in the mud and left to rot for several weeks. Though this food is primarily used for the dogs, the native himself does not disdain it.
