Coca Cola: Stop Sponsoring Dog Death at Iditarod
This petition had 4,248 supporters
Five dogs died in a mere week at this year's Iditarod race -- and those are just the ones we know about.
At this appallingly cruel event, dogs are forced to haul hundreds of pounds of weight for over 100 miles a day, in frigid temperatures that can reach 60 degrees below zero. In 2017 alone, three dogs were raced to death on the trail, one died of hyppthermia on a plane, and another was hit by a car.
A shocking 150 dogs have reportedly died since the Iditarod's inception in 1973.
And it is not reported how many dogs die shortly after the race -- or how many were cruelly "culled" because they weren't fast enough to enter (as is common practice, and even recommended in some training manuals).
As a sponsor of the Iditarod, Coca Cola is promoting some of the most hideous forms of animal cruelty.
Sign the petition to urge Coca Cola to stop sponsoring this brutal event and to condemn the killing of dogs for sport.
