Dorado, a 5-year-old dog running in this year’s Iditarod race, died during severe weather on March 15 in Unalakleet, Alaska. According to news reports, Dorado was left outdoors unattended after his musher, Paige Drobny, “dropped” him from her sled team.
He was exposed to temperatures of negative 15 degrees Fahrenheit and 45 mph winds!
Alaska law requires animal caretakers to provide animals with a safe environment, which was apparently not given to Dorado resulting in his cruel and horrifying death.
We need your help to make sure that justice is served! Here’s what we want you to do:
Send a polite note to the Second Judicial District Attorney’s Office and ask him to file criminal charges against those responsible for Dorado’s death! Submit a copy of your e-mail for 350 Street Team points.
The Honorable Johan A. Earthman
