(WDAY TV) - Authorities in Canada are investigating a report that 100 sled dogs were slaughtered after they weren't needed for the Winter Olympics.

The British Columbia S-P-C-A says the company "Outdoor Adventures Whisler" shot some of the animals and slit other's throats before throwing the bodies into a mass grave.

The company was apparently expecting more sledding business in an anticipated post-Olympic tourism boom, but that never happened. The dogs were killed last April. Police are investigating.
