    ETA: My dad just corrected me and he said that the radio said 2 teams not 2 teens. That makes more sense haha sorry. till sad though



    Anybody hear of the Iditarod crime?

    I just heard on NPR that apparently some loser intentionally ran into two teens sleds running the Iditarod... killed a dog, injured 3. The ****????

    Happened in some Yukon village, forget which one, and apparently the police think they found a suspect.

    The other mushers are still continuing the race running to Nome I guess.

    But what an awful awful incident :(

    ALSO.

    Apparently for the ceremonial start whenever that was I saw the news when it started but I guesz because there is like no snow this year they had to shorten the ceremonial start from 11 miles to 3 miles but were still gonna do the race.

    Weird start to the Iditarod this year.

    I normally don't kepe track and still don't but just happened to see/hear on news. I used to keep track though. I moght start again. Classic race.

    Feel awful for those kids though :/

    Hope the person responsible gets major jailtime. Especially cause it wasn't even just a drunk driver or something (though that'd be bad too), it was intentional. Who the **** intentionally runs over dogs?????

    Sorry for the language (even though it gets censored anyway) but just makes me mad.

    Thanks for the info! I'll read about that. Maybe it wasn't two teens then and was just the guy but I thought the radio said the teen thing so maybe they got it wrong or maybe they were saying the suspects were teens or something. Or I misheard it. Not sure. Either way, it's sad
