In Saturday’s early morning hours, a snowmachiner repeatedly tried to harm Iditarod veterans Aliy Zirkle, Jeff King and their teams outside of Nulato, according to an Iditarod press release, killing one dog and injuring several others.
“Last night, about 12 miles before I arrived to Nulato, one of the many snowmachines that were on the river struck my team at high speed,” King said. “It did not hit my sled or me – and I am fine, I was not hurt in any way – but several of my dogs were hit. One was killed; one’s leg was broken, appears broken; and one is in serious condition with shock and impact.”

Sounds like a story that the victim may have learned that carrying a firearm can prevent such hateful crimes.

Demoski told local media that he had not intentionally driven into the dog teams, but had blacked out while returning from drinking in another village
At least he's been arrested.
Those poor dogs....
