Arlow Kiehl Appeals PA Conviction
On Monday, June 25, 2001, at 1:30 p.m., in the Lancaster County Courthouse, 50 Duke Street, Lancaster, PA, Arlow Kiehl made an appeal on his latest Pennsylvania conviction for transporting equines in a double deck cattle trailer.
Arlow Kiehl won the appeal, but Judge Farina was very clear in his statements to Kiehl and his message was - DO NOT USE A DOUBLE DECK TRAILER TO TRANSPORT HORSES AGAIN!
Members of the equine community attended the appeal and showed their support of humane equine transportation, and the banning of double deck cattle trailers for equine transport.
NOTE: We have numerous eye witnesses who report that Arlow brought his double decker cattle truck to New Holland horse sales the weeks of January 17, 2001, February 12, 2001 and February 19, 2001.
Kiehl knows it is illegal to transport horses in a double decker cattle truck, his guilty pleas in both New York and Pennsylvania are proof of that fact. His continued use of a double deck cattle truck, to torturously transport horses and violate cruelty statutes, is criminal. The slaps on the wrist he has gotten in the past has done nothing, he needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law!
Hopefully, now that Pennsylvania has enacted legislation specifically banning the use of double deckers for equine transport he'll stop.
Should you see horses loaded on a double deck cattle trailer at any time, please call your local authorities immediately. If you do not receive a satisfactory response, then contact your local state police barracks.
