ASPEN — The owner of an Aspen-area dog-sledding company is denying charges he abused his animals.

Dan MacEachen told the Aspen Daily News (http://tinyurl.com/o6kbqhc ) his animals are inspected daily and a veterinarian is called if they need medical care.

Eight charges of animal cruelty charges have been filed against MacEachen. He owns the Krabloonik dog-sledding operation in Snowmass Village.

The charges are misdemeanors. All are related to eight dogs that were seized Dec. 12 after an investigator with the district attorney's office and two state veterinarians carried out a surprise inspection.

Six of the charges concern the lack of food provided to the dogs. The other two counts are related to neglect because two of the dogs required serious veterinarian care. One has had surgery.
