100 Healthy Sled Dogs Slaughtered in Whistler, B.C.

WHISTLER, B.C. — An official of the SPCA in British Columbia says word of a slaughter of sled dogs in Whistler warrants a criminal investigation.

Marcie Moriarty, general manager of the group's cruelty investigations, says the description of the April 2010 incident is an "absolutely criminal code offence," although there is no indication a police investigation is underway.

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

Not pretty-I read the article. They were shot dead because they could not be placed in homes. They should have been euthanized, not shot. The worker who carried out the deed suffers PTSS because of it.

One of the commentors said that it is not easy to place sled dogs because they are not housebroken since they are outside all of the time.

A travesty. I didn't say everything that was in the article...

WHISTLER DOG SLAUGHTER

Post by gcmann100 on Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:24 pm

DON'T BE FEARFUL, BE STRONG, READ ABOUT THE DOGS AS THAT IS ALL ONE CAN DO TO HONOR THEM NOW.
GET INVOLVED WITH THE ISSUE. CONTACT THE WHISTLER CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, SPCA, MLA'S, CANADA GOVERNMENT. JUS TELL THEM HOW YOU FEEL. IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO GIVE STRENGTH TO HIS CAUSE FOR MORE PROTECTION OF WORKING ANIMALS. THINK ABOUT THE ANIMALS ON THE STREET WORKING, LIKE HORSE DRAWING CARRIAGES, SLEIGH DOGS AND MOST OF ALL SHOW DOGS. THEY ALL DIE FAR BEFORE THEIR TIME. DO NOT BUY PUPPIES FROM RETAIL STORES, JUST DON'T!!! PUT PUPPY MILLS OUT OF BUSINESS. I REALLY HATE THAT TELUS USES ANIMALS TO SELL THEIR BUSINESS, THEY DON'T EVEN GIVE TO SPCA OR ANY ANIMAL PROTECTION AGENCY. THAT IS EVIL!

BE STRONG, DON'T LET THIS SORT OF EVIL CONTINUE.

LOVE AND LIGHT,
CATHERINE Razz

Canadian province responds to sled dog killings with new rules

By Kari Huus, msnbc.com

The government of British Columbia, Canada has published new regulations governing the handling of sled dogs — a move prompted by a grisly 2010 case in which a tourism company near Whistler killed as many as 100 animals that become "surplus," amid slumping business.

The Sled Dog Code of Practice is a step — a small one, according to critics — toward addressing problems in competitive and entertainment dog sledding that is mostly unseen.

"The problem with this whole issue is these (breeding and training) operations are out of the public eye," said Debra Probert, executive director of the Vancouver Humane Society. "People see the dogs in public, but they don’t see what goes on behind the scenes."
