A comment was posted on my last post about how the Iditarod is barbaric and cruel. A Harnessed to Hope volunteer attended this year's Iditarod and saw no abuse. Anyone who has seen sled dogs mush can plainly see that they love it. The Iditarod has over 20 checkpoints, and each dog is looked over by a vet at each checkpoint.
If you would like an objective and fact based view of the Iditarod by someone who heard the allgeations of cruelty and decided to investigate, please visit sunhusky.com.
