Heroic Siberian Husky Balto
In 1919, in Nome, Alaska, was born a puppy of Siberian Husky, who was named Balto, after the Sami explorer Samuel Balto. Then, hardly anyone knew that this dog would help children in two years, the courageous deed would be remembered for decades. In 1925, a diphtheria epidemic broke out in Nenana. The vaccine could be taken in Anchorage, more than 1500 km away. The engine of the only aircraft was frozen and would not start. The frost was about −23 °F (-31° C) with strong winds. The vaccine could not be delivered, if not for Balto. In 1933, Balto died. His body was stuffed, and exposed in the Cleveland Museum. A statue of Balto, sculpted by Frederick Roth, was erected in New York City’s Central Park on December 17, 1925.

Balto himself was present for the monument’s unveiling. The statue is located on the main path leading north from the Tisch Children’s Zoo. In front of the statue a low-relief slate plaque depicts Balto’s sled team, with the following inscription: “Dedicated to the indomitable spirit of the sled dogs that relayed antitoxin six hundred miles over rough ice, across treacherous waters, through Arctic blizzards from Nenana to the relief of stricken Nome in the Winter of 1925.
