Letter: Who’s drinking the Kool-Aid?

Readers, as I have been calling for, here is the perfect opportunity to boycott a Snowmass business that supports the cruelty that has been going on at Krabloonik. Joe Farrell, owner of Sunrise Carpet Cleaning, has written a moronic letter that was published in the Jan. 1 edition supporting what is going on there (“Krabloonik gets a bad rap,” The Aspen Times).

I have to say, it is he that has been “drinking the Kool-Aid,” as he says.

This idiotic idea that Farrell has to expect that some dogs get sick or injured and have to be “humanely dispatched” completely misses the point. In animal cruelty cases, it is only because of the lack of adequate care that the dogs are sick in the first place. And it was more than eight dogs.

In October, the state inspector allegedly showed that 20 to 40 dogs were showing “ribs, lumbar and thoracic vertebrae, pelvic bones and obvious waists with abdominal tuck,” according to court documents. It is also very odd that Farrell says that Stuart Mace would be “so very proud,” when Mace’s own daughter has been quoted as saying, “The whole thing makes me so sad.” The Aspen Daily News has stated she is now vehemently decrying her father’s former apprentice (Dan MacEachen) and the Snowmass Village officials’ handling of the business. So drink up more of that Kool-Aid, Joe Farrell. As for me, I will get my carpets cleaned by one of your competitors, and I encourage others to do the same.
