Saw this article last night in the Seattle PI. I think it is the most horrifying/disturbing thing I've ever read. Just the title of it alone is shocking, "Sled dogs slaughtered due to slow tourism". WTF?!
If you can stomach it, read the article... I'd warn against clicking to the Vancouver Sun article though as the details in it are sickening to read.
On NPR this morning they mentioned the story and said the owner of the company, Outdoor Adventures, thought the worker was going to euthanize the dogs "humanely". I don't think there is a way to humanely "euthanize" 100 healthy dogs. HEALTHY! Hello! What this company did was murder. The employee now says he has PTSD and nightmares from what he did, but he did have a choice to say no. Sick sick sick. My first reaction was "I'm never going to Whistler again." But it's not Whistler's fault they have a business owner with no heart. I hope charges are brought against the company, the owner and the employee who did this and I hope this company gets shut down immediately.
Ugh. I need to go home and hug Darwin.
**here's an NPR article too.
