One dog, Nora, was found crawling around in the mass grave 20 minutes after he had dumped her body into the pit. Others were chased, shot cleanly or died after their throats were slit. The employee, according to the report, was "covered in blood" when finished.
BC Enacts Toughest Animal Cruelty Penalties in Canada

Epoch Times Staff Created: Jun 8, 2011
What has been described as “the toughest animal cruelty laws in all of Canada” by provincial Minister of Agriculture Don McRae are now law in British Columbia.
Amendments to the province’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act came about as a result of recommendations made by the Sled Dog Task Force in April.
The task force was appointed to review the circumstances in which 100 sled dogs were slaughtered in April 2010, and to make recommendations to prevent any such occurrence in the future.
“In public consultation British Columbians told us they wanted animals in our province to be safeguarded by a level of punishment that would deter individuals from committing acts of cruelty,” said McRae.
“I’m proud to say animals in B.C. are now protected by the toughest animal cruelty penalties in all of Canada.”
