A woman who gave water to pigs being transported in Canada risks jail time for her actions.
The charge is “criminal mischief.”
As the trucks were stopped at stoplights, Anita Krajnc, 48, and a group of activists, fed and watered the pigs.
In Canada, pigs are treated as property and can be transported for up to 36 hours without food, water or rest.
“We have a duty to give food to the hungry and water to the thirsty. I won’t accept a fine, I would rather go to prison,” said Krajnc.
It’s incredible that we can’t be kind to animals without some kind of criminal prosecution. Yes, these pigs are destined to become food, but they deserve to have some kindnesses along the way.
