Please send protest emails and forward this alert.

>From the Sled Dog Action Coalition, http://www.helpsleddogs.org
<http://www.helpsleddogs.org>

Contact information, email blocks and sample letter are below.

Please help the dogs by sending protest emails to organizations that
support
the Iditarod. These dogs are helpless victims of profoundly inhumane
treatment
and cannot speak for themselves. What happens to the dogs during the
Iditarod
includes death, paralysis, penile frostbite, bleeding ulcers, bloody
diarrhea, lung damage, pneumonia, ruptured discs, viral diseases, broken
bones, torn
muscles and tendons, sprains, torn footpads and anemia.

Dog beatings and whippings are common. During the 2007 Iditarod,
eyewitnesses
reported that musher Ramy Brooks kicked, punched and beat his dogs with
a ski
pole and a chain. Jim Welch says in his book Speed Mushing Manual,
"Nagging a
dog team is cruel and ineffective...A training device such as a whip is not
cruel at all but is effective." "It is a common training device in use
among
dog mushers..."

Iditarod dog kennels are puppy mills. Mushers breed large numbers of
dogs and
routinely kill unwanted ones, including puppies. Many dogs who are
permanently disabled in the Iditarod, or who are unwanted for any
reason, including
those who have outlived their usefulness, are killed with a shot to the
head,
dragged, drowned or clubbed to death. "Dogs are clubbed with baseball
bats and if
they don't pull are dragged to death in harnesses....." wrote former
Iditarod
dog handler Mike Cranford in an article for Alaska's Bush Blade Newspaper.

Most Iditarod dogs are forced to live at the end of a chain when they
aren't
hauling people around. It has been reported that dogs who don't make the
main
team are never taken off-chain. Chained dogs have been attacked by wolves,
bears and other animals. Old and arthritic dogs suffer terrible pain in the
blistering cold.

Most Internet service providers allow people to send up to 50 email
addresses
at a time. For your convenience, the addresses have been divided into
groups
of 50. Please email the first group first. Individual email addresses are
given under the sample letter. The groups contain addresses for the
Iditarod
sponsors, promoters, and the sponsors of the 111 mushers who signed up
for the 2008
Iditarod. Email blocks with semicolons are on

SAMPLE LETTER (Please personalize the letter.):

Dear Iditarod Supporter:

Please end your organization's support of the Iditarod dog sled race.
For the
dogs, this event is a bottomless pit of suffering. What happens to the dogs
during the Iditarod includes death, paralysis, penile frostbite, bleeding
ulcers, bloody diarrhea, lung damage, pneumonia, ruptured discs, viral
diseases,
broken bones, torn muscles and tendons, sprains, torn footpads and
anemia. At
least 133 dogs have died in the race. No one knows how many dogs die
after this
tortuous ordeal or during training. For more facts about the Iditarod,
visit
the Sled Dog Action Coalition website, http://www.helpsleddogs.org
<http://www.helpsleddogs.org> .

On average, 53 percent of the dogs who start the race do not make it across
the finish line. According to a report published in the American Journal of
Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, of those who do finish, 81
percent have
lung damage. A report published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal
Medicine
said that 61 percent of the dogs who complete the Iditarod have ulcers
versus
zero percent pre-race.

Iditarod dog kennels are puppy mills. Mushers breed large numbers of
dogs and
routinely kill unwanted ones, including puppies. Many dogs who are
permanently disabled in the Iditarod, or who are unwanted for any
reason, including
those who have outlived their usefulness, are killed with a shot to the
head,
dragged, drowned or clubbed to death. "Dogs are clubbed with baseball
bats and if
they don't pull are dragged to death in harnesses....." wrote former
Iditarod
dog handler Mike Cranford in an article for Alaska's Bush Blade Newspaper.

Dog beatings and whippings are common. During the 2007 Iditarod,
eyewitnesses
reported that musher Ramy Brooks kicked, punched and beat his dogs with
a ski
pole and a chain. Jim Welch says in his book Speed Mushing Manual,
"Nagging a
dog team is cruel and ineffective...A training device such as a whip is not
cruel at all but is effective." "It is a common training device in use
among
dog mushers..."

Jon Saraceno wrote in his March 3, 2000 column in USA Today, "He
[Colonel Tom
Classen] confirmed dog beatings and far worse. Like starving dogs to
maintain
their most advantageous racing weight. Skinning them to make mittens. Or
dragging them to their death."

During the race, veterinarians do not give the dogs physical exams at every
checkpoint. Mushers speed through many checkpoints, so the dogs get the
briefest visual checks, if that. Instead of pulling sick dogs from the
race,
veterinarians frequently give them massive doses of antibiotics to keep
them running.

Most Iditarod dogs are forced to live at the end of a chain when they
aren't
hauling people around. It has been reported that dogs who don't make the
main
team are never taken off-chain. Chained dogs have been attacked by wolves,
bears and other animals. Old and arthritic dogs suffer terrible pain in the
blistering cold.

Please end your organization's association with this horrific race.

Sincerely,

Iditarod Sponsors:
