Animal & Sled Dog abuse

One man threw 4 of his dogs in the ice cold river and made them swim to shore. He wanted to see which dogs were faster!! That’s BS! Their ways are abusive to all animals! They want to stay living a 3rd world country like & not let any new Ts in their village. Mainly because they don’t want to share the animals they kill with anyone!!

This title has:

Too much violence

Mickey & Minnie

Who are Chris & Jessie ? They have ruined a fantastic show. Are the really near Tanana, how come none of the regulars know them. turned up totally unprepared. Built that log bridge on their own..right. Don't think he could tie his own shoe laces. Wher did the dog come from

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (6):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Yukon Men highlights what contemporary life is like in a remote, interior Alaskan town, where residents must rely on the land -- and on one another -- to take care of everyday necessities, including heat, water, food, and even burying their dead. It also underscores how environmental changes are negatively impacting the weather, animal behavior, and people's overall ability to survive.

It's informative, but the show does have scenes of animals being trapped, hunted, killed, and butchered, as well as some scenes relating to the death of a resident, all of which may be difficult for younger and/or sensitive viewers to handle. But folks who like this sort of voyeuristic experience will find it worth watching.
