Everyday women diagnosed with breast cancer overcome obstacles to lead positive lives.
These unsung heroes do this without jeopardizing the lives and the welfare of innocent animals. People who abuse animals are not inspirational, which is
why I am asking you to cancel the talk by Iditarod musher DeeDee Jonrowe.
Here's a short list of what happens to the dogs during the Iditarod: death, paralysis, penile frostbite, bleeding ulcers, broken bones, pneumonia, torn
muscles and tendons, diarrhea, vomiting, hypothermia, fur loss, broken teeth, viral diseases, torn footpads, ruptured discs, sprains and lung damage.
On the average, 53 percent of the dogs who start the Iditarod do not make it across the finish line. According to a study published in the American Journal
of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, of those who do finish, 81 percent have lung damage. The Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine reported that
61 percent of the dogs who finish the Iditarod have ulcers versus zero percent pre-race. For more information about the Iditarod, visit the Sled Dog Action
Coalition website, http://www.helpsleddogs.org .
In 2002, Jonrowe's dog Mark died during the Iditarod from a bleeding ulcer. According to Dr. Paula Kislak, President of the Association of Veterinarians for
Animal Rights, "Perforations don't occur acutely. They occur over days to weeks to months. At times, the actual rupture may occur acutely but signs
should have been evident--lack of interest in food, more vomiting than normal, discomfort in the abdominal area. There would be signs detectable before
the actual rupture." In short, Jonrowe ignored Mark's pain and suffering and forced him to race.
There is something morally wrong about humans having dogs do harmful things like racing in the Iditarod. Don't promote this horrific race. Cancel
