WHISTLER, B.C.–
There is growing outrage in British Columbia after dozens of sled dogs slaughtered by a tourism operator.

Around 100 sled dogs were shot dead last year by an outdoor adventure company in Whistler, B.C.

Last April, after tourism dollars dried up following the Winter Olympics, the company resorted to shooting the dogs.

The animals were dumped in a pit with some reportedly buried alive.

The SPCA and police are investigating the allegations.
