It’s About Time! Iditarod Plans Changes After Sled Dog’s Death

The fallout from the Iditarod dog death continues. This week we wrote about Dorado, who died from asphyxiation while being kept outside by race officials all night, and organizers of the annual event have agreed to make changes.

Dorado had dropped out of the race, which is a common occurrence in the 1,000-mile endurance competition. He was with 135 other “dropped dogs” at a checkpoint, awaiting transport to Anchorage. Unfortunately, because of the amount of dogs, about 30 of them had to be kept outside.
