The Iditarod is a dog sled race held every March in Alaska. The dogs are beaten with a whip, forced to race when exausted, denied proper veterianary care and are often chained without proper shelter. At least one dog dies during every race.

NS&S. Most team owners love their dogs and give them excellent care. The dogs love to run. But a few bad apples....ruin a good thing.

This race should be banned Too much cruelty happens and neglect of these dogs too many injuries and too many deaths What is it all for Once again for man pleasure and entertainment money and greed without any thought of the animals welfare I have never seen men harnessed to a sled racing and being whipped and kept in horrible conditionsThey should try this for a change Shame on all those who support the Iditarod

Done. I do not believe any dog should be forced to run any race for these idiotic individuals. Many of these dogs are treated very poorly and simply used only for these races, then abandoned. Very sad.
