Just like section 2, in section 3, more obstacles are arising making their destination to Paulet Island look even more challenging. Their progress continues to be somewhat slow, as the ice never really opens up completely for them. The men are pushed to the brink of starvation, as their lives begin to revolve around the thought of food, and the urgency of needing more of it to survive. Their was times they had alot of food, like when Macklin killed the 1000 pound sea leapard, but this was only one of the few times they actually had a decent meal. In this section the men had to eat the dogs in order to survive. Many people may disagree with the eating of the dogs, however, its easy to have this opinion when your not starving to death.
