In early October I was in the Whistle Bend area when I saw a fox in the bush that had just been hit by a vehicle.
I called the game branch and was told they would check on it maybe the day after, but I doubt they had any intention of checking on it.
The fox was internally injured and very scared. There was nothing I could do about it so I just left it.
At the end of January, I called the game branch again about some young baby foxes downtown. I told them the mother had died and that the babies were still on the mother’s milk.
The conservation officers told me not to feed the foxes or they will die. They also said that they don’t want animals running around Whitehorse.
One officer told me the game farm doesn’t take them which was a lie. I phoned the wildlife preserve and the woman I spoke to said they do take injured animals.
I don’t know if it’s because they don’t want to do the paperwork or what but the conservation officers don’t seem to want to help animals.
I am really frustrated over this and as far as I am concerned there is nobody to call because there is no help.
Things like this make me ashamed to be a Yukoner.
