An Iditarod dog disappears before ceremonial start

0

A dog in Alaska's Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race disappeared Saturday during preparations for the ceremonial start of the annual trek to Nome.

Anchorage television station KTUU reports the 2-year-old dog Hudson took off when the back doors of the musher's trailer were open.

The disappearance happened about two hours before the ceremonial start began with mushers taking a short sprint with their teams along downtown Anchorage streets.

The musher, who lives in Skipvet, Norway, told the station Hudson had not been seen since.

The dog was last seen heading toward a nearby neighborhood in the downtown area.
