Astonished. Horrified. Disgusted. Agonized. These are only a few of the feelings I had when I found out that TWO months after the Olympics, an event that celebrated the highest possible physical abilities, 100 sled dogs were culled, or more accurately, viciously murdered or executed, at Whistler Olympic Village.
To abhorrent to be true? Read the WCB report filed by the man who did this.
or on CBC website: http://www.cbc.ca/bc/news/bc-110131-worksafebc-whistler-dog-cull.pdf
A very quick heart and gut wrenching synopsis: It took this person two days to shoot/ slit the throats of 100 dogs. He says in the report that he still sees ( when he tries to sleep) the terror in the… eyes of the dogs who trusted him , as he systematically picked them out, (or as they realized their fate) had to hunt them down in front of their pack. He threw their bodies in a pit , one on top of the other, those that were not quite dead yet ,tried to crawl out. He went into the pit and made sure they were now dead.
Other dogs “when they realized what was happening” tried to attack him. WHEN THEY REALIZED! Do you know anything about dog mentality? And if you do, can you imagine what must have been going through their brains?
And now this guy is getting compensation! If he receives compensation, it should be from the company who ordered the executions!
Well now I and many many others want compensation for the dogs!
Criminal investigation against the man who did it, criminal investigation against the company! Remove their ability to own any life form whatsoever as they have proven their inability to treat it with respect and dignity! They still have 200 dogs apparently. What will they do with the remainder?
This is horrific and completely unacceptable. There must be laws put in place IMMEDIATELY to protect animals who have no or limited voice. Write your MLA or your politician, I DON”T CARE WHERE YOU ARE! YOUR VOICE COUNTS! Write the company. Write the Whistler town council! Write the Whistler tourism companies! But PLEASE WRITE to express your outrage and that you do not accept this behaviour!
The BC Tourism industry is a huge part of this province’s income. Boycott BC until the LAWS ARE IN PLACE AND THIS COMPANY IS INVESTIGATED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW!

I am not going to post the gory details. If you want to read them yourself. Last I checked there were almost 400 reports around the world of this atrocity:

Now my question is, if business doesnt pick up, and it most likely won’t, what will they do with the other TWO HUNDRED DOGS?
