Convict Serial Animal Abuser for Mistreating Dogs


Target: Colorado District Attorney 9th Judicial District Sherry Caloia

Goal: Convict dog-sledding business owner on eight counts of animal cruelty, for neglecting dogs and leaving them out in freezing temperatures

The owner of the Aspen, Colorado-area dog-sledding company Krabloonik has been indicted on eight counts of animal abuse for neglecting and mistreating his dogs. According to the Denver Post, owner Dan McEachen has been accused of underfeeding the animals and leaving them outside in freezing temperatures. A couple of the dogs even had visible wounds that were untreated. We must encourage District Attorney Sherry Caloia to prosecute MacEachen to the full extent of the law.

Unfortunately, MacEachen has a long history of animal abuse. In 1988, he pleaded no contest to an animal cruelty charge that indicated he had broken bones in a dog’s face. After MacEachen completed only one year of probation, the charges were dismissed, and it seems that MacEachen’s abuse continued. As recently as 2011, an employee reported finding a dog frozen to death under MacEachen’s watch.

Dozens of dogs are killed at Krabloonik every year. As stated by PETA, “at Krabloonik Kennel in Aspen, Colorado, as many as 35 dogs have been killed annually by gunshot to the head, according to a former employee. Krabloonik’s manager defended the killings, saying, ‘[Culling dates] back hundreds of years. This is nothing new. … This is part of the circle of life for the dog-sled dog.’”

By signing the petition below, you will urge District Attorney Sherry Caloia to do everything in her power to convict Dan MacEachen, and his Krabloonik dog-sledding company, on eight counts of animal abuse. Each conviction could lead to fines of up to $5,000 and up to 18 months in prison.


Dear Sherry Caloia,

I was pleased to learn that you have indicted Krabloonik dog-sledding company owner Dan MacEachen on eight counts of animal cruelty. MacEachen, and his history of animal abuse and neglect, must be stopped. Please do everything you can to see that he is found guilty on the multiple charges of abuse.

As you know, MacEachen has been accused of underfeeding his animals and leaving them outside in freezing temperatures. You may not be aware that he also plead no contest to an animal cruelty charge in 1988, which indicated that MacEachen had broken bones in a dog’s face. His Krabloonik Kennel also contributes to the deaths of dozens of dogs every year.

I am urging you to use your power and influence to convict Dan MacEachen on eight counts of animal abuse and seek the maximum punishment of $5,000 and up to 18 months in prison.

  1. These dogs ran their hearts out. Please, Please!!! Let’s convict these people.

  2. Really? The max punishment to take a life is only $5,000/18 months?

    • Thank you! My thoughts exactly. If they dont start doing something more than a slap on the wrist, the abuse will continue. And it is continuing. Horrific! Assh*les. Burn in F-ing H*ll.

    • Canada laws is a joke, $5000 and 18 months in jails when this guy massacre hundreds of lives. No justice at all. If I were him, after 18 months I would do it again and again.

      • canadian legislators are like all the rest. their concern is money and getting reelected. these jackasses promote the slaughter of baby seals every year,wolf hunting etc. there is no compassion, no sense or thought of doing what the people want—it is all “special interests” and money.

    Stop killing these dogs. Punish the killers because the past is NOT how to treat an animal. There are rescues for dogs, the dogs have the right to live. They did what they were suppose to do, NOW its up to the people to take care of the dogs by retiring them to at the least, a rescue group. Punish the abuser full extent of the Law and then some. These type of people have ego problems and use an animal to feed their egos. I am AGAINST ANIMAL ABUSE.

  4. Garth Mills says:

    IT is clear that the Canadian government has no Integrity no Scruples Honesty or Morality , so much for their moral posturing. Do they not know that you can not call the shots ,if you do not lead by example. The want of money is the biggest evil on Earth, so many people have compromised their values and it would appear that the Canadian Government is no different.
