Man charged in post-olympic deaths of 100 sled dogs in Whistler BC
[link to www.thestar.com]

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.”

The guy who did the killings got charged. But it didn't seem like his employer Outdoor Adventureswho who ordered the killings got charged. Maybe I need to read it again, but I don't think so.
The slaughter originally came to light because the guy filed for post traumatic stress in his claim for workers' comp. So he had suffered in having to do the killing. But his boss that made him gets off scott free.

Wow that is brutal and just plain sad. I spent a day working with about 80 sled dogs in Quebec 10 years ago and those dogs were amazing. Hard working and friendly. So sad

"I was just following orders" never works as an excuse. You do the deed, then you are the guilty one.

So incredibly sad.

When I think of these horrors that we've done to animals, I want to denounce my species..

I agree. But shouldn't the employer have gotten charged as well? It was there idea. They are accessories.

It is standard practice for real working sled dogs to be shot because they hardly ever can be re trained.

Perhaps it would have been better if the dogs had killed a child and mauled a few people.

60 billion animals a year get slaughered for food in the US alone. Many are treated much worse than these dogs. This is a tragedy, yes, but we don't treat any animal well in our culture.

True, but you can't really argue with dogtards using logic and reason. I have a friend who is an animal behaviorist with a "rescued" doberman mix. It was supposed to be euthanized due to aggression but she "saved" it. Despite years of work on her part the damn thing still came at me for no reason and took a chunk out of my leg a couple of years back. This was after I had met and interacted with the animal on many previous occasions.

I am a vegetarian. I don't think any animals should be slaughtered en masse. If someone wants to eat animal flesh, they should go to a local butcherwho sells meat of well-treated animals. Any mass slaughter is is indicative of a system out of balance.
This case is interesting because of the public outcry. Many many many dogs are killed each day at the local humane society. Why did this story grab people's attention? I think it was because of the blatant disrespect of the dogs.
