Justice for Dog Found Dead in Sled Dog Tours Exposé

Target: Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food for Canada

Goal: Investigate tourism operation that allegedly left sled dogs chained outside in extreme cold.

A recent award-winning documentary investigating alleged animal abuse uncovered one particularly horrific instance where a dog was discovered dead due to exposure. In the film, Sled Dogs, director Fern Levitt profiles Windrift Adventures in Moonstone, Ontario, a sled dog operation geared toward tourists. During the interview, a dog is discovered to have died, reportedly due to having been left out during the extreme cold.

This is not the first time that Windrift Adventures has come under scrutiny for the allegedly cruel treatment of its sled dogs. The operation has been criticized in the past for not providing adequate veterinary care for injured dogs and leaving them sick and starving in the cold when not used to pull sleds for tourists. If these allegations are true, this business must be stopped and its dogs rescued immediately.

No animal deserves to die due to the neglect and selfishness of his or her owners. Sign this petition to demand that the Canadian government fully investigate the claims of abuse at Windrift Adventures and ensure that the owners be punished severely if they are found guilty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister MacAulay,

A dog was reportedly discovered dead at a kennel owned by Windrift Adventures during the filming of a recent documentary on the treatment of sled dogs in the tourism and sporting industries. The dog had allegedly died as a result of being exposed to freezing temperatures while chained outdoors. A full investigation into this dog’s death must take place.

Windrift Adventures has been the target of previous allegations of mistreatment and neglect of the estimated 120 dogs kept at its kennel. Former clients have reported seeing dogs that appeared malnourished or that had untreated wounds.

We, the undersigned, demand that you investigate all of these claims fully and ensure that this business is shut down, and its owners severely punished if they are found guilty of having harmed or killed any of the animals in their care.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
