Terrible: 86 Sled Dogs Dumped Into the Shelter System in Whistler

The Whistler Sled Dog Co., which adopted the survivors of an infamous 2010 dog-sled massacre by a company called Outdoor Adventures Whistler, is calling it quits. Eighty-six sled dogs are headed to shelters and rescues in Canada and need new homes — and if you think a highly energetic sled dog makes for a successful adoption, you’ve got another thing coming.

We know that a lot of people involved in the latest chapter of this mess care for dogs. The real bonehead in this might just be the idea of running a large dog sled business during the short season to begin with. First, dogs were massacred three years ago because business slumped, and now 86 are heading into the shelter system, according to the Province.
