Protesters hold march for sled dogs killed in Whistler, BC

A group of approximately 70 people and their dogs marched over the weekend in Whistler, BC – to protest the killing of 100 sled dogs, as reported by the Canadian Press.

I really like this line from the story –

“” Lise Landriault and Sally Murray, two Whistler-based makeup artists, circulated a petition calling on the federal government to strengthen animal cruelty laws. “”

Both Canada and the United States could stand some serious improvement to anti-cruelty laws and we need to increase the penalties for abusing animals and kids. The current level of slap-on-the-wrist punishment just doesn’t work.

    Thanks so much for posting an update about that horrible story. Something, anything good must come from that horrific event. I cried myself to sleep the night I found out, I still have a difficult time accepting it. We’ve got to do whatever it takes to prevent anything like that from ever happening again.
