Alaska’s Iditarod race punishes mushers for sheltering dogs from storm

*** begin quote ***

Iditarod rules say dogs cannot be taken inside shelters except for race veterinarians’ medical examination or treatment. However, cruel or inhumane treatment of dogs is also prohibited during the event.

*** end quote ***

I suggest that rule writers be kept outside.  The humans and dogs should be inside.  Then let’s see if the “rules” change.

Sorry but the dogs should be inside and the humans outside.

Argh!
