From the Bowling Green Daily News: A trial date has been set for 13 members of Auburn’s Amish community who have been cited for violating a local ordinance that requires them to clean up after their horses.
Authorities have accused the Amish defendants of running afoul of Auburn’s ordinance setting forth the need for large animals traveling within the city limits to be fitted with devices to catch their droppings.
The ordinance cites a need to promote public safety.
The Amish who live in Auburn are members of a conservative sect known as the Swartzentruber Amish, which rejects motor vehicles and most other modern technology and travels on horse-drawn buggies.
The Swartzentruber community decided that using the bags would violate the community’s religious standards, which has left its members at odds with local law.
Currently, there are 37 pending cases against 13 people involving citations for violating the ordinance, according to Travis Lock, the defense attorney representing the Amish.
