Iditarod 2022 is now over.
Animal abuse is the name of the game for Alaska’s Iditarod dog-sled race—and this year was no exception. During the nearly two-week ordeal, which ended yesterday, two dogs went missing and a musher was apparently forced to drop out after dogs he used were found in poor condition. In addition, during training before the race even began, multiple dogs were attacked and one was killed.
Nearly 250 dogs were pulled off the trail this year because of exhaustion, illness, injury, or other causes—forcing the remaining ones to work even harder to pull the sleds. Brent Sass was crowned the winner, but the only thing he really won was the title of Top Dog Abuser.
