The Iditarod Dog Sled Race Hurts And Kills Dogs


In 2009, six dogs died. Among them, two dogs on Dr. Lou Packer's team froze to death in brutally cold winds. A romanticized version of the Iditarod fails to reveal dogs who endure death, paralysis, frostbite, bleeding ulcers, bloody diarrhea, lung damage, pneumonia, ruptured discs, viral disease, broken bones, torn muscles, tendons and sprains. For more facts, see the Sled Dog Action Coalition's website:
