Winter is Coming

Dr. Michelle Oakley hanging out of a helicopter above the Alaska/Yukon Highway. A herd of wild horses have been wandering too close to the Alaska Highway and have been causing problems for motorists. The Yukon Government has called Michelle to track the herd and get them away from the highway.

Winter weather in the Yukon has come and the cold temperature brings in some serious work for vet Michelle Oakley. Michelle makes a house call to a blind farmer who has a male goat that hasn't been able to breed. Then, Dr. Oakley is tasked with trying to move a heard of horses away from the highway and attempts to corral them by helicopter. Next Michelle heads down to the American Bald Eagle Foundation to perform a check-up on a very uncooperative owl.
