Dear Sir or Madam,
If you'd read the entire interview with Lou Packer, you'd know that he had just gotten back on the trail after spending a terrible night in woods off the trail. He wasn't running his dogs, and that's what led his wife who noticed very slow movement (approximately 2 miles per hour) on the GPS Lou had on him to call Iditarod headquarters and ask them to look for her husband because she believed he was in trouble...and he was. Dr. Packer himself believes Dizzy and Grasshopper probably died of hypothermia. They were both wearing dog coats. He tried to save them both as you'd know if you read the entire interview. So why are you reporting these sad deaths as occuring because they were "run to death"? Lou Packer was traveling at the back of the pack with several other rookie mushers because they were going so slow. So here's a word of advice: misreporting events makes one look suspect.
