Mass sled dog killing probed in B.C. - British Columbia - CBC News

"I won't use the term euthanized, [which] implies a humane death, and I can say that based on his description, at least a number of dogs did not have a humane death. His descriptions of using a shotgun, blowing off half of the dog's head while it ran off, a dog crawling out of a mass grave, it just made me shudder," Moriarty said.

^^^This paragraph really creeped me out. Fawcett should have gotten more than probation.

FirstTimeGSD He killed something like 56 dogs, but what he was charged with were 9 of them that were killed inhumanely (slit throats) I believe. Apparently dogs don't like witnessing other dogs being shot and dumped into graves, so the ones who got panicky had their throats slit(...?)

brandongill1 it was talked about in court that he not only shot them, but he also slit their throats as well, most likely the dogs experiencing and extreme amount of pain.

B.C. man pleads guilty to shooting, slitting throats of over 50 sled dogs

Freestep "After the information leaked out about the cull, Fawcett and the company that bought his business, Outdoor Adventures, issued a statement in February 2011 that many of the dogs were old and sick, and efforts to have them adopted were unsuccessful.
The company said no instructions were provided to Fawcett on how to kill the animals, but that he was known to have put down dogs humanely on previous occasions."

As far as I know, it is legal to shoot your own dogs, as long as it is done in a humane manner. Was it shown that it was not done humanely?

Killer of 9 sled dogs gets a very lenient sentence

Over where I live in Vancouver B.C this case had been going on for awhile, supposedly after the winter olympics, this guy shot, or slit the throats of 9 sled dogs, and only received 3 years of probation and a fine, I'm shocked he didn't even receive a life time ban on owning pets, and really put other helpless pets in jeopardy, wonder what your guy's thoughts were
