A shocking video from this year’s European Championship of the dogsled race in Switzerland shows Claudio De Ferrari tormenting a number of huskies that have collapsed and are unable to run. De Ferrari was filmed violently attempting to push on a number of exhausted huskies. He finally forces them to finish running the line, after which he was crowned Vice-European champion and given a trophy. The European Association WSA responded by temporarily blocking De Ferrari until the next general meeting at which the incident should be addressed. In the mean time, the dogsled sports club in Austria has excluded the musher from all future events.
Please ask for a lifetime ban for De Ferrari!
