    "... Documents obtained by CKNW radio reveal about 100 healthy sled dogs were killed in a mass slaughter in Whistler last April 21 and 23.

    ....

    “I know I’ve said in the past that I’ve seen horrific things involving animal cruelty, but reading this, this blew my mind,” said Moriarty.

    “It was an absolute massacre. Some of the descriptions were, yeah, just horrifying.”

    She said some of the dogs were shot in the head, but others clearly suffered and did not die instantly. ... "


    I guess when you run out of seal pups, what's a country to do?

    This is unconceivable , that the govnerment did do anything .... And i am not condemning Canada only , as there are many cases of animal cruelty in the U.S as well ... I volunteer at an animal shelter , and i have teared more than once when we have received abused animals ... I just cannot comprehend why , these sick people doesn't get a harsher punishment .....

    "Moriarty said police are applying for a warrant for the file from WorkSafe, and RCMP are also investigating. Following revelations of the cull on Monday, the Vancouver Humane Society called for a ban on the sled dog tour business.

    Craig Daniell, executive officer of the SPCA, said he's angry WorkSafe BC kept the information about dog slaughter under wraps for months.

    With the ground now frozen, getting access to the dogs' bodies as part of the investigation will be extremely difficult.

    "It's absolutely apparent from the facts that are in the WorkSafe document that these are horrendous cases of animal cruelty," he said.

    "I think that there really should have been some sort of duty on the part of WorkSafe to be able to pass that document onto other authorities to investigate further."

    Except that Gordo (our far right-wing premier) revamped WCB and renamed it worksafe BC complete with new rules...busily removing what he called 'needless regulations'

    yourname2000 saidOh fuck...I could only get half way through that article before I broke down. Fuckin' piece of shit....I can't believe this happened here. My heart sinks. I hope the fucker who did this goes to jail and gets gang raped daily until he fuckin' dies.


    Apparently the employee who reported it got compensated for PTSD...

    I hope that after the investigation he, AND primarily the manager responsible as well as other employees for the decision receives due justice.
