I loved this post. I'm definitely keeping it for future reference; It's given me some sources to track down some time soon. While not fisheries, in talking to a few people who run racing teams, I learned that a significant portion of scraps from moose hunt end up in at least a few kennels' feed (leaving me to wonder about Taenia krabbei infections) around the interior. While I can't comment on prevalence, this definitely is a recent innovation. It's very interesting, and potentially useful for planning, to know how technological developments has changed how people use wildlife resources and fisheries. Unfortunately, this sort of material is too far-afield for most wildlife biologists. I know here at UAF there's some effort to remedy this with the RAP program, though how successful that'll be long-term remains to be seen.

I cannot believe some of you people. What a bunch of ignorant people! This is something that the dogs love to do as well as the owners of the teams. "Team" that is who they lost was a member of their "Team". It not only affects the owners of the "Team" but it affects all of the dogs as well. Every dog on the "Team" has a role and when something like this happens it can be devistating to the whole "Team". So who ever wants to comment on a Sick Society, and that people say it hurts the dogs or what happened to the snowmobiler. That isn't the point of the article the point of the article is this "Team" lost a very valuable player. It will probably affect their outcome. These people train the whole year for these races. It takes a lot of time, money, and training the dogs. So please people that don't know what the heck they are talking about don't even go there!


I enjoyed your post. I was a young Alaskan woman who visited many areas of Alaska, and I so enjoy reading posts of my homeland. Thanks, for I once lived the subsistence way of life. The historical knowledge is also informative. Thanks for sharing.......Cinder
