4 Sled dogs die in accident

Kasilof musher Jon Little is grieving the death of four of his sled dogs after they were hit by a vehicle during a training run. Six of the dogs were struck by a Homer resident, who says he didn’t have time to stop. One of the dogs was not hurt, but three died instantly. Of two injured dogs, one had to be euthanized Tuesday.  Wolf, a 3-year-old male, was hit, but his tug-line snapped and the frightened animal ran away. Little got him back Wednesday morning. Wolf had no broken bones, but had a major ankle dislocation.
