Media Celebrates Mushers Who Run Their Dogs to Death in Minus -52 Below Temps!
Apr 27, 2018 — This petition now speaks with the voices of 7,757 people from 111 countries around the world demanding change and telling the world that the blatant abuse of defenseless animals in 1,000-mile sled dog races will no longer be tolerated. Your support has made that possible and your comments make it clear this is an issue people feel very strongly about and it’s not going away! Well-done! Thank you on behalf of sled dogs everywhere.
When I see the media continuing to hype this barbaric race and to publicly celebrate mushers who run their dogs to death in minus -52 below temps I know we need to continue to speak out loud and clear both as a nation and as responsible citizens of this planet to expose the ugly truth behind the scenes to the world and end the horrific exploitation and the blatant abuse of defenseless sled dogs in the Yukon Quest 1,000-mile International Sled Dog Race. The dogs continue to pay with their blood.
We’re now at 7,757 signatures - let’s shoot for 10,000 and send a strong message to the Yukon Government and to the world that global opposition to this cruel and inhumane event is growing daily. The world is watching.
You can further help to end the abuse of Northern sled dogs and expose the ugly truth behind this grueling event by sharing this article on social media. https://www.yukonpoetlaureate.com/long-distance-sled-dog-racing/
