SPCA investigates slaughter of 100 Whistler sled dogs

The “execution-style” mass cull of 100 sled dogs owned by Whistler-based Outdoor Adventures has sparked an SPCA investigation into allegations of animal cruelty, outrage from animal welfare groups and suspension by Tourism Whistler of reservations for dog sledding excursions by the company.

The cull came to light because of a successful WorkSafeBC claim for post-traumatic stress by the employee who killed the dogs over two days last April.

  2. gah, I live in canada, and the second I heard about this I felt sick. Why didn’t they sell the obviously trained dogs? or even just give them away? or, if they really wanted, properly putting them down. I do not support putting them down at all, but it would have been a million times better than fucking shooting them. If I worked for the company and heard about it myself, I would have walked off of the job that instant.
