Anita Krajnc is being criminally charged for this very incident, when she gave water to exhausted pigs during a scorching hot day in June this year.

October 14 was the first court appearance of the Toronto Pig Save co-founder. Here is the press release released by the organization:

Compassion Isn’t Criminal
Animal Rights Activist to Appear in Court on Charges of Giving Water to Thirsty Pigs

On October 14th, animal rights activist Anita Krajnc will appear in the Ontario Court of Justice in Milton, Ontario, on charges of criminal mischief and interference with property. These charges were filed after Ms. Krajnc offered water to overheated and thirsty pigs on board a transport truck outside Fearman’s Pork Inc. slaughterhouse in Burlington.

Activists will hold a demonstration outside the Milton courthouse (491 Steeles Ave E) on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 at 8 am, the morning of Ms. Krajnc’s court appearance.

Thousands of people across this country and across the world give water to thirsty animals every single day. From shop clerks offering water to thirsty dogs to homeowners providing birds with birdbaths.

Yet over 8 million farmed animals die each year in this country as a direct result of our outdated transportation regulations. Canada has the worst transportation regulations in the Western World, worse than Australia, New Zealand, the European Union and the United States.

“Offering water to a thirsty pig is an act of compassion. It is not only a right, but a duty we all share. Causing the pigs to suffer in the first place is what is wrong,” said Anita Krajnc, an organizer with Toronto Pig Save. “I face these criminal charges with dignity, knowing that truth and justice are on my side.”

Ms. Krajnc is represented by counsel James Silver and Gary Grill.
