About 100 sled dogs were killed after bookings dropped sharply for a tour operator following the 2010 Winter Olympics.

VANCOUVER (British Columbia) - AN ORGANISATION that fights animal abuse is calling the slaughter of 100 sled dogs by an outdoor adventure company in British Columbia a bloodbath and police are investigating. The British Columbia SPCA's manager of animal cruelty investigations said on Monday an Outdoor Adventures Whistler employee was told to cull the dogs. Marcie Moriarty says some dogs were shot, while others' throats were slit before their bodies were pitched into a mass grave. Vancouver radio station CKNW radio is reporting that the company expected more sledding business in an anticipated post-Olympics tourism boom. But the boom never materialised and the sled dogs were killed last April. Outdoor Adventures Whistler couldn't be reached for comment. -- AP
