Krabloonik discussion resumes at Snowmass

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen CO, Colorado

SNOWMASS VILLAGE ” The Voices for Krabloonik animal advocacy group and the Krabloonik Advisory Committee will both appear at Monday’s 4 p.m. Snowmass Town Council meeting to discuss their work at the Krabloonik dog-sledding operation owned and operated by Dan MacEachen.

The dog-sledding operation, which has long been the subject of criticism by local animal-rights activists, exists on land owned by the town of Snowmass Village.

Bill Fabrocini and Lee Ann Vold will explain progress thus far, including the formation of the Krablonik Advisory Committee, a recent “Vet Day” in which vets found the dogs to be generally healthy, and successful adoptions of retired sled dogs.

They also will discuss their concerns about the growing number of dogs at the facility (now 290), and their desire to see the dogs exercised and watered regularly.

Voices of Krabloonik began a media campaign expressing concern about conditions at the facility at the end of this past summer. In the intervening months, they have softened their message, encouraging concerned citizens to help MacEachen improve the facility rather than criticize it.

Interested parties are encouraged to attend Monday’s town council meeting.
