Having read “Doggone mystery” (Society, Oct. 31), about Whistler’s sled dog massacre, I am fighting back tears in sheer anger and disbelief over the alleged actions of Bob Fawcett, former general manager of the sled dog company. How anyone with half a heart could commit such blatant cruelty on creatures so utterly defenceless is beyond my comprehension.

Sled dog atrocity
It is reprehensible to me that the B.C. Workers’ Compensation Board granted Fawcett’s claim of post-traumatic stress disorder. The emotional aftermath of allegedly chasing down and brutally killing 56 panicked dogs hardly qualifies as a work-related injury or disease. The fact remains that no one held a gun to Fawcett’s head, which is more than can be said of the dogs.
