Warning: Not for the sensitive.
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).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.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
I don't know what the laws are for animal cruelty in Canada, but can this tour operator do jail time or even go to trial??
You cannot tell me that they could not find homes for at least some of the dogs....huskies can be used for purposes other than sledding.
