108 charges alleged in Park Co. sled dog case

Last month, the Park County Sheriff's Department will recommend that 108 counts of animal cruelty be filed against the owners of the Pawsatrak Racing Sled Dog Kennel near Hartsel, CO.

State and Park County investigators removed a total of about 100 dogs, all of whom were neglected and starving.

"The facility itself was appropriate for the type of dogs because this breed is well suited for the weather. The problem is that proper nutrition was not provided," said Anderson. "Overall, the dogs seemed to have good temperaments and are very friendly."

A Way to a Happy New Year

To leave the old with a burst of song
To recall the right and forgive the wrong;
To forget the thing that binds you fast
To the vain regrets of the year that's past;
To have the strength to let go your hold
Of the not worthwhile of the days grown old,
To dare to go forth with a purpose true,
To the unknown task of the year that's new;
To help your brother along the road
To do his work and lift his load;
To add your gift to the world's good cheer,
Is to have and to give a Happy New Year.
