Canadian police are investigating the reported killing of 100 huskies which had been used to pull tourist sleds in the ski resort of Whistler.
An animal rights group claims the dogs were killed inhumanely by an outdoor adventure company and thrown into a mass grave.
Local media reports say business slumped after the 2010 Winter Olympics and the dogs were no longer needed.
The company could not be reached for comment.
"We've opened a police file and assigned an investigator," Police Sergeant Steve LeClair told AFP.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in British Columbia, alleged that an Outdoor Adventures employee was told to cull the dogs in April last year.
