Don’t Jail Woman for Giving Water to Pigs

Pigs Farm Sanctuary

Target: Madeleine Meilleur, Attorney General of Ontario

Goal: Drop charges against Anita Krajnc for giving water to pigs in a transport truck.

A Van Boekel Hog Farm transport truck was parked and packed with pigs. Anita Krajnc, an animal activist, approached the truck and gave the thirsty pigs water before they started their way to the slaughterhouse. Now, Krajnc is facing criminal mischief for interference with the use, enjoyment of and operation of property.

As Krajnc was giving water to the pigs, the truck driver yelled, “you know what, these are not humans, you dumb frickin’ broad.” Krajnc ignored the truck driver and showed the pigs as much compassion as she could in such a short amount of time.

Compassion is not a crime. People are praised when they give stray cats and dogs water, so why should she go to jail for giving it to a pig? Sign this petition and demand that the charges be dropped against Anita Kranjnc.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Meilleur,

Anita Kranjnc is an animal activist that has recently been charged with criminal mischief for interference with the use, enjoyment of and operation of property.

Kranjnc saw a Van Boekel Hog Farm transport truck parked and filled with pigs. The pigs were crammed, scared and on their way to slaughter. She approached the truck and gave the pigs water, although the truck driver told her not to. This is what brought about the charges.

Compassion is not a crime. People are praised when they give stray cats and dogs water, so why it is a crime to give pigs water? Please consider dropping the charges against Anita Kranjnc.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This kind of action is one of the things that make Canada a laughingstock to the rest of the world.
    The value of life and avoidance of suffering applies to more than stupid Canadians. It applies to all animals regardless of their circumstances.
    Do the right thing and drop the charges and pass legislation preventing this senseless abuse in the future.
    Remember, the entire world is waiting to see if you are receptive to correcting this matter.

    • Well actually, the U.S has much the same problem, with the animal enterprise terrorism act, and ag gag bills. One woman was jailed for filming workers in Utah dragging a downed cow( unable to walk to the death) which is technically illegal. She wasn’t even on the property, she just filmed it with her cell phone. An undercover investigator with Compassion Over Killing was charged with -get this- animal cruelty for filming workers abusing calves. Four activists were also arrested in Utah for simply taking pictures of a factory farm from the road.
