I remain haunted by a news story I heard last week of a Whistler tour operator who ordered the killing of a hundred underemployed sled dogs. The employee in charge of the cull, as it is being called, is now unemployed, or unemployable, the task having been too much for him. Why the SPCA did not investigate when concern was expressed (then rescinded) is beyond me. Why CKNW chose to broadcast the grisly details is beyond me as well. Why I listened, well, that is my fault too.
