Necropsy results exonerate workers

The Yukon government says the results of a necropsy on a fox that was killed at the Erik Nielsen International Airport proves maintenance workers did nothing wrong.

The workers killed the fox because it was on the airport tarmac. Some witnesses said the workers shot the animal before running it over, and those rumours led to a great deal of controversy on various social media sites.

But Allan Nixon, the deputy minister of highways and public works, says the necropsy shows the workers followed proper procedure.
