We received a report from Fort Yukon that dog mushers in the area are in desperate need of dog food because the chum salmon run was so poor this past summer.
They didn't get enough fish this summer to feed their teams and a request has gone out from an employee of the tribal government for help.
Tamara Henry, who works as the natural resource director, sent an e-mail to legislators, the governor's office and others about the problem. She said that some people are talking about killing their dogs because they have no food.
"Can someone please help me in finding some assistance," she said in her e-mail.
