The couple accused of starving dozens of their sled dogs at their Park County kennel appeared in court today.
Sam and Diane Walker’s hearing was continued and now they are scheduled be formally charged on Jan. 26 in Fairplay.
The Walkers turned themselves in to Park County authorities on Christmas Day, more than a week after about 100 Husky-mix sled dogs were seized after Park County Sheriff’s Deputies were given a tip that the dogs were starving. . Six of the dogs were already dead, and another died after the raid.
The Walkers now face felony animal cruelty charges. The surviving dogs are
being cared for at several Colorado animal shelters.
