100 sled dogs slaughtered
The cruelty and callousness of the people involved is rivaled only by their stupidity. According to some commentaries I read, everyone is scrambling to deny responsibility: the dogs' caretaker who claimed compensation for post-traumatic stress (Why did he "just follow orders," to use that infamous phrase?), WorkSafeBC that granted his request for compensation, Outdoor Adventures which owned the dogs. Tourism Whistler, the marketing and sales organization for Whistler Resort where this happened, surely didn't know anything about the slaughter. As a promotional company, they would know what a public relations nightmare would result. Yet they still bear responsibility. The phrase "on their watch" comes to mind.
