Picking on a skin

This bird was pecking on some kind of animal pelt near the Gwich’in campground outside of town near the East Channel of the Mackenzie River.

What kind of animal is this?

  1. Most probably a caribou although it’s kind of hard to judge the size of it despite the fuel can. I know they hunt caribou around Inuvik, so it’s an educated guess…

  2. Seems likely, but is darker brown than I’d imagine.

    Could this be a bear?
