    No.




    I agree. City people are too far removed from farm life.
    I've been involved in the processing of hundreds of animals for food. I've also put down a number of pets or diseased animals. It's never easy, but must be done for the sake of that animal not to suffer.

    My point is there are humane ways to do things that must be done. The subject of this thread is based on inhumane and irresponsible actions.

    Yes. On the instruction of a vet, I executed a hamster by putting him under my car's exhaust pipe, CO poisoning.

    Have you ever participated in killing animals for food processing, ie: slaughter house, chicken processing, etc.

    .
    No.

    A disgusting act!!!! The owner of the business is Joey Hussein, his Father owned Whistler/Blackcombe up until a few years ago. My younger brother went to school with him and is best friends with a cousin. Point I know for a fact the little piece of garbage owner has crap loads of cash!!!! Talking Joey and Daddy took their G5 to the World Cup of soccer in South Africa kind of money. So its not that the owners of these dogs couldn't afford their upkeep during a slow business time. Knowing the owner via my brother and driving his punk a$$ home when he was in high school. He and his family are flippin loaded. So while the employee was inflicting animal cruelty, the owner was jetting around in his Gulfstream!

    There's proper procedures and humane ways to do things. This incident does not sound like such nor is it likely to be a legal way of doing what may or may not have had to be done. It's a whole separate subject from human suffering.
    Tex, there are very few who have had anything to do with where there hamburger patty comes from. I did two cows ten days ago, they're hanging right now. To this day I still don't like the killing part, but it is what it is. I think everyone should have to be part of the process atleast once.

    Like it or not it is what it is.

    I knew a guy who raised pigeons. I think he used them in homing competitions. He stated that he had to "break their necks" on several occasions to get the best birds.

    And do you like dog racing? What do you think happens to those beautiful Grey hounds when they are done with them? They don't race past 5 years old, and a broken bone is automatic retirement. It is a fact that only a percentage is saved after their racing days are over. I think it is 50% saved.

    Believe me I am NOT for this and it does sound like the guy did not do things correctly, whatever way that may be.

    We have major human suffering around the world, let's focus on that. Maybe all the govt. people working on the case should be sent to Haiti for a month to do some good for humankind. Sigh.
    Also I find it odd that the guy can collect WC, but might face criminal charges. Sounds like bad legal advice.

    I have to agree with the comment at the end of the article.
    That sounds nothing like any sled dog operation I have ever seen or heard about.
    In AK, competitive mushing is big. Those guys you see on TV racing the Iditirod, and moreso, the World Championship sprints during the Fur Rendezvous, have gone through hundreds of dogs each year to end up with that team.
    Culling is part of the deal. Most mushers are acutely aware of that, and have different methods that strive to be as humane as possible.

    That deal in the article sounds like a tourist based business, with very little to do with real mushing, and certainly nothing to do with the proper care of the dogs.
    Any of the mushers I have ever been acquainted with would love nothing better than to skin the guy alive for that type of behavior.

    Guys, I think the guy collecting comp was employed by the guy who ordered the killings.
    As for dogs vs humans; A dog is generally a total innocent, while a guy that orders 100 dogs shot is...well, he ain't innocent in my book.

    One other thing; In looking at the past of mass murderers, a somewhat common thread is cruelty to animals when they were young; I don't trust anyone who can hurt an animal...not talking about hunting- most hunters do it for food, and would never consider letting an animal suffer.

    I agree with that.
    The people posting above are not libturds, so where does that leave us?

    So how many dogs suffered, one or more? Did the others "suffer" merely from seeing that one dog die?
    Does this merit a major investigation? No dog fighting, no torture, just an amateur doing the killing, who probably turned his head and missed the shot?


    "There aren't words to really describe some of the ways these dogs died," she said. "We don't put cows down like that. .

    Sure we do.

    He said it is now company policy that animals needing to be euthanized are treated at a veterinarian's office.

    Always wondered why animal cruelty bothers me far more than human cruelty.
    Like the old saying "if a man and a dog were drowning, I'd want to save the dog".
    If they took the shooter, blew his face off, sent him running, chased and killed him, then made dog biscuits out of him. I would have no problem with that.
    We've spent the last 10,000 years getting animals to trust humans to the point of them having to rely on us for their well being and when some idiot comes along and does something like this to violate that basic trust it makes me crazy. I think the punishment should be fitting of the crime. Maybe chase him down while he is wounded and finish him off exactly the way he did to his dogs.
