BALTO CELEBRATES 100 YEARS
While saying this may make this news article seem pointless, I would like to point out that there isn't a known date or birth for Balto. Historians don't even know if Balto was born in 1919. The most there is to go by is a quote by Leonhard Seppala, the man who bred and raised Balto, mentioned that he was six years of age during the serum run in the Cruelest Miles book. Unless someone in Seppala's family found the records of his birth and passed them along to the Cleveland Museum, this news may or may not be factual.
Anyway, today, March 2nd, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History is celebrating Balto's 100th birthday. If you happen to live in the Cleveland area, you can stop by the museum and celebrate along side them. You can also donate money in support of improving and adding more content to his exhibit. I know that's something I would personally love to see! Even though I don't live in the state of Ohio (I did visit his mount back in 2006), his exhibit has always lacked.
