A Criminal Matter? Iditarod Dog Dies After Being Buried in Snow

Earlier this week, in a touching story about how an Iditarod sled dog found her way home a week after escaping during the race, we talked a bit about the dangers of the Iditarod, which is to blame for the deaths of 136 dogs since records have been kept, according to PETA.

Today, we learned that another dog has been added to that list: Dorado, who died after being removed from this year’s race and was waiting to be flown home. What went wrong? Well, he was left outside all night in freezing, blowing snow, where “temperatures plunged to minus 15 degrees and winds reached 45 mph,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
