Nome musher Rolland Trowbridge and Iditarod veteran Ray Redington, Jr. will be among the rookies running the 2015 Yukon Quest from Whitehorse to Fairbanks.
People for Animal Welfare and Safety, or PAWS, of Nome has been hard at work the past few weeks. With limited veterinary care in Nome and a large number of animals around town, they’ve been providing extra services to the four-legged members of our community.
In yet another clash between canine and ungulate, two dogs were injured last weekend by a muskox near a biking trail in Nome.
Over the weekend, a hunter in Nome killed the first muskox since the Alaska Department of Fish & Game opened the hunt on August 1. Meanwhile, another dog was attacked on Anvil Mountain.
Nome resident Diana Adams will not face criminal charges after Wildlife troopers changed her summons for taking a musk ox out of season to a written warning. And while Adams said that’s a relief, she maintains that the July 17 kill was in defense of life and property, or DLP.
Aliy Zirkle and Allen Moore work as a team to prepare healthy, race-ready dogs. Coming off his 2014 Yukon Quest victory, Allen Moore takes a back seat for the Iditarod, as Aliy runs their elite team, hoping for a finish at the top.
