In April 2010, 100 husky sled dogs who participated in the Canada Winter Olympics were slaughtered. Reportedly, one man carried out the killings utilizing both a shotgun and a knife. The slaughter took place because the company who owned them — Outdoor Adventures — felt the dogs were no longer a viable profit source. They then ordered them slaughtered.
There is no justification for this savage act of murder. Killing animals — and especially the manner in which the dogs were slaughtered — should never be tolerated, period. That 100 dogs were so brutally executed for such callous and selfish reasons is reprehensible.
All of those who were part of this act need to pay for what they've done. Sign the petition urging the Canadian government to further investigate the slaughter, punish those responsible, and enact stricter legislation that would combat such savage acts of animal cruelty.
Dear Prime Minister Harper:
I was appalled to learn about the mass husky slaughter that took place following the 2010 Winter Olympics. Outdoor Adventures, the company that owned the dogs, ordered the killings because there was no longer a demand for them once the games had come to a close.
Reports claim that one sole person conducted the slaughter, using knives and a shotgun. Not only were these killings inhumane and unnecessary to begin with, they were administered in unspeakable ways.
Outdoor Adventures didn't want to spend the time or money to find these perfectly healthy dogs eligible homes, so they decided that getting rid of them altogether was the best way to remedy the problem.
These kind of actions cannot go unpunished. One hundred innocent creatures are now dead because of one company's ignorance and greed. I am writing to ask that you take action against Outdoor Adventures and make them pay for their cruelty, as well as lobby for stricter animal cruelty laws in Canada.
Thank you for your time.
