While the US recently voted to ban poaching with the Global Anti-Poaching Act, things north of the border aren’t looking that great. Aside from recently electing a new Prime Minister that loves wearing fur, we have news that an animal lover may be facing 10 years in prison for giving water to thirsty animals.
Anita Krajnc of Toronto will stand in court to answer charges of mischief for giving water to thirsty pigs transported inside hot metal trailer on a hot June day. Animal activists are buzzing all over twitter and facebook with the slogan “Compassion is not a crime #StandWithAnita” to raise awareness of this dubious charge that gets people in legal circles scratching their heads.

On June 22nd, Anita was part of a group of animal activists “Toronto Pig Save” that offered water to thirsty pigs being transported to slaughter houses. one of the truck drivers got out and told them to stop pouring “unknown liquid” through the holes and she quoted a bible verse about giving water to the thirsty. The driver said “They’re not humans you dumb frigging broad”. The owner of the pork farm contacted the police and filed a mischief charge which may range from a fine to up to 10 years in prison.
Kranjc’s trial is set to take place Wednesday. Many will be curious to see what the plaintiff will say to prove what Kranjc did was mischief. Kranjc said she will not pay the fines if found guilty and charged and will continue to show compassion to pigs along with other activists on Thursday.
