Question by floonable: Why isn’t dog sledding considered an Olympic event?
Generally the winter games exhibit all manner of sports conducive to winter. Skiing, skating, curling, etc. Has dog sledding ever been considered as a possible Olympic event?
I am sure the animal rights periphery will also have something to say with regard to this.

It may have been considered. I’m just not sure it would meet the competition requirements to be an Olympic sport.
