Free Activist Who Gave Water to Dying Pigs and Faces 10 Years in Jail

Target: Justin Trudeau, Prime Minster of Canada

Goal: Free the activist who gave water to slaughter-bound pigs.

Anita Krajnc faces up to 10 years in prison for giving water to dying pigs. Her kind offerings are the only comfort the pigs receive before they face an inhumane death behind slaughterhouse doors. Urge Prime Minster Justin Trudeau to stand behind Krajnc and encourage the Ontario Court of Justice to drop the charges.

As a co-founder of Toronto Pig Save, Krajnc participates in daily vigils outside of a local slaughterhouse. The area has come to be known as “Pig Island.” Every day, truckloads of pigs pass through these roads on their way to slaughter. They are crammed into a small metal truck bed and exposed to the elements without consideration of their comfort. The pigs are denied food and water during these transports and suffer in the hot sun. On especially hot days, Krajnc gives water to the thirsty pigs. When the Van Boekel Hog Farms’ slaughterhouse truck stopped, Krajnc saw the pigs suffering and took action. Unfortunately, the truck driver did not approve and filed a police report that same afternoon.

Now, Krajnc faces a criminal mischief charge that carries a $5,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison. This is unacceptable. Sign below to demand that Prime Minster Trudeau stand behind this compassionate activist and encourage the dropping of all of her charges.


Dear Prime Minster Trudeau,

Anita Krajnc is facing up to 10 years in prison for her compassionate care of animals. Her only crime is giving water to a truckload of pigs on their way to slaughter. We demand that you stand in support of Krajnc and encourage the Ontario Court of Justice to drop the charges.

Krajnc is a co-founder of Toronto Pig Save. This organization stands vigil outside of slaughterhouses and comforts the animals before they go to their deaths. Pigs arrive in large metal trucks and are exposed to the hot summers and freezing winters. They are not provided with water or food during this journey. If not for Krajnc and her fellow activists, the pigs would be deprived of these small comforts before their inhumane death behind the slaughterhouse doors.

Compassion should not be rewarded with a prison sentence. We demand that you stand behind Anita Krajnc and encourage the Ontario Court of Justice to drop the charges.

  1. It’s the carnist jihadists and their white knights and corporations that should pay for their willful crimes against other sentient beings. But it’s not a crime for animals to be used as slaves, tortured, confined, raped and murdered, that’s sad it’s still like this and it’s 2015. The activist should be praised and released, not persecuted for exposing the truth. This is disgusting that this holocaust keeps happening in Canada and the Uniter States and moast people are denying, ignoring or white knighting it.

  4. Britne' Sumpter says:

    It’s obvious that the driver feels guilty about what his job task is for that person to even call and complain…yes waste of tax payers money. For the ones doing the torture to these poor animals and for the ones ignoring this issue, count your blessings. GOD SEES ALL!

  5. Christine Bennett says:

    The influence of corporations over reason and justice has obviously warped Canada to the extent that this nation cannot be differentiated from the most uneducated and primitive of backwaters, in the treatment of its citizens.

    I agree that boycotting Canada’s products and tourist industry is the only way because it is money, not ethics that counts in corporate-ruled Canada!

  6. Guillaume LAURENCIN says:

    It’s intolerable that those pigs – and all other animals – suffer because of mankind. We own a lot to animals, and we only injury, abuse or kill them in pain. Bad humans we are. Everybody is guilty

  7. Josee Taylor says:

    I think that most people commenting on this appalling story feel as I do they r standing by this lady and her compassionate actions.Canadian law needs to change immediately and the truck driver should search his conscience and revoke his complaint then justice will have been served.My prayers will be with Anita and I know that the Dear Lord will bless her

  8. lee wee kusn says:

    The lady is not wrong.she was kind hearted.why penalise her?thought country a great and liberal one.

    No matter what these son of bithches thinks of you but you are BEST in all the manner from the people who have given this judgement. One day their judgement day will come and there will be nobody to give them a drop of water. Karmas plays important role in our life.

  10. sandra mason says:

    this was without a doubt the animal’s last time to feel kindness… most likely it’s ONLY time. the people who brutalize these animals before they are slaughtered walk away to kill again and again.. this woman who only gave them a few moments of compassion is getting punished. do they not see the problem with that?

  11. Darlene Avery says:

    The way we treat these poor animals is appalling. Anita is a kind, wonderful person who truly cares about all animals. Canadian laws need to be updated and enforced to stop the vile way they are treated. PM Trudeau just voted against Bill C 246, so I do not hold any postive thoughts about his helping any animals in the near future. Truly, a nation is judged by the way it treats the poor and its animals. Canada has a very long way to go.
