The man who admitted to killing more than 100 sled dogs in Whistler in 2010 has been criminally charged in the mass slaughter.

The Criminal Justice Branch of British Columbia announced Friday that Robert Fawcett, a dog-sled operator at a Whistler-based company, faces one count of causing unnecessary pain or suffering to a number of dogs after dozens were culled when tourism slowed following the Winter Olympics.

“We are extremely pleased,” said Marcie Moriarty, the general manager of cruelty investigations at the B.C. SPCA, whose probe led to the charge. “This was definitely the largest animal investigation that we’ve ever conducted.”
