Sen. Begich Tells TSA: PETA is not the source for accurate Iditarod facts and Alaska history


After learning the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) cancelled its plans to recruit Alaskans during the upcoming Iditarod race at the urging of PETA, Sen. Begich sent a letter to TSA Administrator John Pistole expressing shock and disappointment at the decision. Sen. Begich said PETA has a history of not understanding the Iditarod and the care mushers provide for their dogs and urged the Administrator to next time consult real Iditarod experts like Lance Mackey or Dee Dee Jonrowe to understand the race and what it means to Alaskans.
