Iditarod 2017 – Day 5

Iditarod 2017 MapSled DogMitch got the halfway prize ($3000) but he hasn’t taken either the 8-hour or the 24-hour stops. Meanwhile Dallas has completed his 24-hour and is on the trail to Huslia.

From the Alaska Dispatch Iditarod live blog:

A 2-year-old male dog named Deacon, running on Sterling musher Seth Barnes’ team, died outside Galena late Thursday, Iditarod officials reported.

A report from the race said the dog died at about 11:40 p.m. “just prior to Barnes’ arrival at the Galena checkpoint.”

“A necropsy will be conducted by a board-certified pathologist to make every attempt to determine the cause of death,” the report said.
