The HSUS is concerned that sled-dog racing is gaining popularity and support. The society is committed to protecting the interests of animals and improving the quality of their lives, and sled-dog racing is an unnecessary and dangerous activity for people as well as animals.
In March, David K. Wills, HSUS vice president for investigations, went to Alaska to observe the Iditarod sled-dog race. The HSUS views the Iditarod, in theory and in practice, with increasing concern. We believe that unless the organizers of such spectacles eliminate the elements of risk to the animals, the events should be prohibited in their entirety. The challenge is to determine how such reforms or prohibitions are to be achieved.
