The Brutal Iditarod Race
09 Mar 2019
The annual barbarism and brutality of sled dog
slavery and torture in the Iditarod race continues.
Stephen Colbert promoted the Iditarod in his
monologue Friday March 8 2019. It is a 938 mile race held in early March annually in which sled dogs are forced to run in a team for 8 to 15 days. The trail is
from Anchorage Alaska to Nome, Alaska. Teams are made up of 16 dog victims. Dogs die of exhaustion, freezing, whipping, broken necks, broken legs, drowning, falling into chasms, tangled chains which
can strangle or totally cut off circulation. The dogs are expendable to the profiteers and the trophy-driven humans.

Please ask Rex Tillerson to use his influence
with corporate heads at Exxon Mobil to end their
sponsorship of the Iditarod
