Hi teacher friends.  For those of you following the Iditarod with your students, you've probably already heard of the senseless attack this morning by someone who intentionally tried to hurt two mushers, Aliy Zirkle and Jeff King, and their dog teams.  Unfortunately, it seems that two mushers were injured and one dog was killed and other dogs were injured.  Please be sure to talk about this and process this information with your students.

What a crazy, senseless act!  This news makes me so sad.  My deepest sympathy to the mushers, their families, and their dogs teams.

Here's a video clip from ABC News.  Here is another news account and statement from the Iditarod Trail Committee.

Such a senseless crime against the innocent dogs and their human companions.

>>> March 12 Update:<<<
The man responsible is in police custody.  Here is a video from the Today Show.
