ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A plea hearing for an Aspen dog-sledding operator who faces animal cruelty charges has been postponed until Feb. 18.

The Aspen Times reports (https://tinyurl.com/lvygsmt ) Dan MacEachen appeared in Pitkin County Court Tuesday and waived a formal advisement of the charges.

He was scheduled to enter a plea but the judge delayed that at his request.

MacEachen has denied wrongdoing. He and his attorney, Greg Greer, left the courthouse Tuesday without commenting.

Eight dogs were seized from MacEachen’s business, called Krabloonik, on Dec. 12. Prosecutors say six hadn’t been fed enough and two needed serious veterinarian care.

MacEachen faces eight misdemeanor animal-cruelty charges.

Greer said MacEachen had agreed to pay about $4,500 for the animals’ care since they were seized. They’re being housed at Colorado Animal Rescue in Glenwood Springs.
