David Marciano explained in a 1995 LA Times article on the series that the dead caribou seen in the pilot was a real caribou that they killed for use in filming. The Inuit people told the producers that they killed the caribou and did not use it for it's true purpose and that unless they had a proper burial for the caribou, the show would be cursed. Marciano then explained that the show was then cursed with such incidents as a plane use for production crashing and a special effects explosion nearly blowing up a location (the El Mocambo rock club). So the producers went back and gave the caribou a proper burial.
