Sled dog slaughter, and the aftermath

I haven't commented on the slaughter of 100 sled dogs in B.C. Been too sick about it. Along with the massacre of thousands of dogs in Ontario.

But the comments of Marcie Moriarty, B.C. SPCA head of animal cruelty, make me livid.

Christie Keith from the Pet Connection blog has a wonderful two-part article on intelligently refuting Ms. Moriarty's comments. Part one is here and part two is here. Well worth the read.

What really frightens me is how Ms. Moriarty's comments are only one step to the side from those of "breed banners"....the lumping of individuals into a mass and incorrect generalization.
