SPCA Investigates Massive Killing of 100 Canadian Dogs
I think the word “slaughter” is the more appropriate word to describe the recent discovery of 100 dogs that were shot and killed.
Due to a lag in business after the winter Olympics, the owner of a well known dog sled tour in Whistler, BC openly admitted to ordering the killing of 100 dogs. The dog sled tour, named “Outdoor Adventures Whistler” is declining to make any public statement on this case of animal cruelty. The Vancouver Humane Society is suggesting a ban on the sled-dog tour business.
This is another case of business taking precedence over animal welfare. Documents have revealed that the dog sled tours struggled after the Olympics. After the company could not find a home for the dogs, the pack of innocent dogs were shot in April.
The employee that was commanded to slaughter the dogs has not been named. However, there are documents that state that the employee has been given compensation for developing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being forced to kill the sled dogs.
The BC SPCA is currently investigating this case of animal abuse and officials are eager to locate the mass grave that contains the slaughtered dogs.
Documents have revealed even more information. Information that is quite sickening. Marcie Moriarty, manager of animal cruelty investigations, claimed it is the worst investigation she has ever done. In the documents obtained by the CKNW radio station, it was reported that a man was attacked by the nearby dogs as the shooting occurred. He was forced to slit the throat of one of the dogs that jumped on him. This story has brought tears to my eyes. It takes a lot to make a 27 year old male cry. However, this story of the brutal killing of animals stirs up emotions of anger and sadness. Please spread the news of this awful tragedy to make sure that this never happens again. It only takes a little bit of awareness to discover acts of animal cruelty. Take a moment out of your busy day and show others that you care!
