    Iditarod Dog’s collared in PED scandal

    http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-w...doping-scandal

    Alaska's Iditarod race committee has identified four-time champion Dallas Seavey as the musher whose dogs tested positive for a banned opioid pain reliever in this year's race. Seavey is denying the charge and has withdrawn from the 2018 dog sled race in protest.

    Last week, the Iditarod Trail Committee announced that at the March finish in Nome this year, four dogs from a single team had tested positive for the drug tramadol. The committee initially declined to name the musher involved.

    "I have never knowingly broken any race rule. I have never given any banned substance to my dogs," he said, adding that he fully expects to be banned but that he doesn't care "if I never make another cent" from the sport, which he said "is my life."

    He said he spent several months trying to explain how his dogs showed positive for the drug, but instead was "thrown under the bus."

    "I believe this was given to my dogs maliciously," he said. "That's one of the options. I think that is the most likely option. There are numerous ways that could have been done."

    Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.
