This unfortunate and horrific accident has turned into a Salem Witch Trial. Based on everything I have read on this subject and incident, no laws were broken in regards to the use of the double decker. Certainly the driver should face some kind of charges as anyone should in most traffic accidents but the owner appears to have been transporting horses as the law allowed at that time.

I am a horse and animal lover, but I think these animal rights activists are going over board with this incident. There are no laws against hauling horses in a double-decker trailer to an auction barn, which is where they were going. It is illegal to transport them in that way to slaughter only, and they weren't going to slaugher. HELLO Verndale,MN is in the USA and horses aren't slaughtered in the USA, so what is the basis of these charges against these men???
