FROM: Mark Nordman, Race Marshal
The gross necropsy phase of the post mortem examination of "Takk," a 
7-year-old male from the team of Kjetil Backen, has been completed. 

Preliminary findings indicate that the cause of death was due to blood loss 
associated with the presence of gastric ulcers.  Further tests are pending. 

There was no evidence of negligence or abuse and Kjetil and his team has been 
allowed to continue to Nome.
