The HSUS weaseled thier way into trying to control the Ididarod Sled Dog race in Alaska, claiming that it was cruel to dogs
. This despite the facts that the dogs are better cared for than most, healthier, and obviously love to run. The number of dogs that actually die during the race (a few out of 600 or more) is a small fraction of the general dog population that dies for health reasons and accidents that are merely pets. The Ididarod finally threw them out, but not before the HSUS did their damage to the race. Bastages!!!
