Would you risk jail time or a $5,000 fine to give a thirsty slaughterhouse-bound pig water? For Anita Krajnc, the answer is a resounding “yes.”

Anita Krajnc is a Canadian animal rights activist who is on trial for giving water to thirsty pigs who were heading to a slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario on a scorching hot June day in 2015.

Here’s what happened: While a trailer packed with pigs en route to Fearmans Pork slaughterhouse was stopped at a light, Krajnc approached the trailer. Believing that the pigs were overheated and dehydrated, she tipped her water bottle through holes to provide what water she could to them.

That’s when the truck driver Jeffrey Veldjesgraaf emerged. Not-so-kind words were exchanged, and the pigs’ owner filed a complaint with police shortly after the incident occurred.

1. Yes. Risk is a funny thing.

$60 put bolt cutters in my trunk. Twice.

Kudos to Ms. Krajnc for doing what she saw as humane and right.

2. This is clearly a guilt law showing this killing/torture industry knows guilt

I thank this compassionate woman and encourage her to expand into full activist mode against the meat industy.
