Target: Craig W. Richards, Attorney General of Alaska
Goal: Seek the maximum penalty for snowmobiler accused of slamming into Iditarod teams, killing one dog and injuring others.
One dog was killed and three others were wounded when a snowmobiler drove directly into two sled teams during the Iditarod race. Demand justice for the animals harmed by this reckless act.
Two mushers reported that the attack felt intentional. The driver never stopped and fled the scene immediately after the first attack. In the second incident, the same driver reportedly hit a dog and then turned around several times in an apparent attempt to hit more. This caused the musher to feel threatened.
A 26-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the events and charged with third-degree assault, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and criminal mischief. Sign below and demand the harshest penalty for the person convicted of this violent act.
Dear Mr. Richards,
A snowmobiler killed one dog and injured three others in an alleged attack. The dogs were part of Iditarod teams. We demand the harshest penalty for the person responsible.
Two mushers claim that the attacks felt intentional. After the first incident, the driver fled the scene. During the second incident, he reportedly turned around several times. The second musher alleged that he was targeting her sled.
Musher dogs are an important part of Alaskan culture. They train for long hours and work hard to succeed at their sport. Their lives are just as valuable as any human life and should be honored in the same way. We demand justice against the person convicted of this violent act.
[Your Name Here]
