Animals In Print
The On-Line Newsletter

From 11 August 2004 Issue

From the Sled Dog Action Coalition  

Wild Women Unite, a group that seeks to empower women, invited Iditarod musher DeeDee Jonrowe to be a guest speaker at its Wilderness Weekend, Sept. 16 to 19 in Pulaski, New York. In the 2002 Iditarod, Jonrowe's dog Mark died from a bleeding stomach ulcer. On the All About Animals Radio Show, Dr. Paula Kislak, President of the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights, said that before Mark's ulcer ruptured there would have been signs that an ulcer was present. He would have showed "a lack of interest in food, more vomiting than normal, discomfort in the abdominal area."

Jonrowe has admitted having over 100 dogs chained on five foot tethers in her kennel, sleeping on the sled while the dogs race and breezing through checkpoints. When mushers blast through checkpoints, the dogs do not get veterinary physical examinations.

Ask Yvonne Kopy and Annette Snedaker, the directors of Wild Women Unite, to cancel Jonrowe's speech.
