    Laikas are used to hunt bears, fur-bearing animals (squirrel, sable, marten), ungulates (such as elk), and forest and water birds. Having sighted the animal or bird, the laika attracts its attention with barking and detains it until the hunter arrives. It pursues a fleeing animal or bird silently. The only people who can tell these stories better than Richard Chase are the folks in North Carolina and Virginia who told them to him. These stories have been handed down for generations and have been enjoyed by grownups and children alike.5/5(1).
