    Default 100 sled dogs killed by Canadian tour operator

    War grave experts exhume bodies of 100 sled dogs killed by tour operator in post Winter Olympics massacre

    A team of war grave experts have exhumed the remains of 100 sled dogs who were killed by a tour operator in a post Winter Olympics massacre.
    The specialists, who have dug up graves in Rwanda and Iraq, will dig for the huskies near to the ski resort Whistler, Canada, at a cost of 142,000 ($225,000CAD).


    In one of the world's biggest ever animal cruelty cases, the dogs are believed to have been shot and knifed to death by a company employee following the Winter Games, which was held at nearby Vancouver.



    The incident took place last April at Howling Dog Tours where tourists paid around 200 ($315CAD) for a three-hour, two-person sled ride through the valleys surrounding the town.


    Each sled was towed by six dogs each, but the company found it had too many animals when bookings fell following the end of the Winter Olympics in February last year.


    The killings came to light when the employee who carried out the cull was given compensation for post-traumatic stress disorder.



    By the end of the slaughter the man - who said he was told to cull 100 of the 300 dogs after a local vet refused to destroy healthy animals, and he could not find new homes for them - was said to be killing dogs 'in a haze' and was covered in blood.


    The dogs were shot or had their throats slit, while those that proved hard to kill had to be 'wrestled to the ground and stood on' before they could be shot in the head.


    The dogs were shot or had their throats slit, while those that proved hard to kill had to be 'wrestled to the ground and stood on' before they could be shot in the head.


    The details of the killings were revealed in documents from the local health and safety body, which awarded the employee - who has not been named - undisclosed compensation for stress.


    Previously he had put down sick dogs by taking them into the woods, giving them a meal and shooting them.


    But the size of the cull meant he had to kill the animals in full view of other dogs.


    By the time he had shot his fifteenth husky, he noticed the dogs were 'experiencing anxiety and stress', the documents revealed.


    At one point the man shot but failed to kill a husky called Suzie - the mother of his own pet dog.


    'He had to chase Suzie through the yard because the horrific noise she made when wounded caused him to drop the leash,' the report said.
    When he managed to kill Suzie, he accidentally shot another husky which had not been due to be killed, but had to be put down.


    'He also had to perform what he described as "execution style" killings where he wrestled the dogs to the ground and stood on them with one foot to shoot them.'


    The report added: 'He described a guttural sound he had never heard before from the dogs and fear in their eyes.'


    It also told how he was attacked by an injured animal and had to use a knife to kill it after he ran out of ammunition.


    'His memory of the final 15 dogs is hazy,' the documents added. 'Some he shot cleanly, others he had to chase.


    'In some cases it was easier to get behind the dogs and slit their throats.'
    I just fuckin' give up.

    Husky's are the most beautiful dogs. I want to puke. Whistler isn't very far from me. I haven't heard this on the local news or anything.

    I can see why no one wants to talk about it. But I'm glad there's going to be a serious investigation. Doesn't Canada kind of keep the lid on explosive stuff--keep it out of the media pre-trial? If there will be a trial...

    BASTARDS!

    I am not sure about Canada. I am actually in the USA but, within driving distance of Whistler BC.

    I really, really would like to see the owners of Howling Dogs Tours named and shamed on the internet. This story should be attached to their names for the rest of their lives.

    The internet named and shamed a woman who taunted a dying child; named and shamed that bitch who tormented a girl into killing herself ...

    This information should be available to anyone who is considering doing business with these pieces of shit. It should be available to anyone who's considering inviting them to dinner. I want names!

    Just the description of this maniac chasing the dogs and the pain they must've went thorough in their last moments makes me want to heave and cry at the same time. What a fucking sack of shit and the people behind it are not better.

    I remember this from an earlier thread when it first happened (or came to light).

    Anatomy of a sled dog massacre

    It boggles my mind, he seems to understand how cruel what he did was but he still did it anyways. I don't doubt for a minute that he has post traumatic stress disorder.

    Anyhow, I am curious as to why they are digging the dogs up? He doesn't seem to deny the cruelty/way they were killed, I wondering what type of information they are hoping to glean.

    They could have found homes for those dogs. Now THIS SHIT is unforgivable.
