Recently, a rumour had been circulating about the Fort’s new snowblower. The large industrial snowblower had been reportedly killing dogs as it cleared snow.
This, however, was just a rumour, according to Dennis Saharchuk, superintendent of public works.
While he admitted, “it has some risks to it, that machine,” there are lots of safe-guards in place and the rumour may have started with jokes due to the imposing appearance of the machine.
The creation of an urban legend is averted, and the community canines can rest assured, the snow blower poses little threat.
