How great can we be?

Dear Editor:

I have been informed of the inhumane living conditions of the sled dogs at Krabloonik Kennels. I am sure you have heard Gandhi’s famous words, “The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” By this standard, America has a long way to go before it can be considered a truly great nation. Please take a step toward that goal by calling attention to the mistreatment and neglect of dogs at Krabloonik Kennels.

No dog should be forced to live her life on a chain. No dog should be forced to lay in her own waste. No dog should be denied clean drinking water, exercise and medical attention. I understand that you have already been informed of the many PACFA (Pet Animal Care Facilities Program) regulations being violated at Krabloonik, so I will not repeat them here. Whether your publication has animal lovers on staff or not, I hope you agree that no living being deserves to suffer, especially for the sake of mere entertainment.

If you have an interest in maintaining the character of Aspen/Snowmass, I hope you will conclude that a business like Krabloonik Kennels can only have a place in your community if they treat their animals with care, kindness and respect.
