Anita Krajnc, of Toronto, was charged with criminal mischief when she gave drinking water to pigs being transported to a slaughterhouse on a hot day.
From The Guardian:
A video of the incident shows the driver, identified in court documents as Jeffery Veldjesgraaf, climbing from the vehicle to confront Krajnc.
“Jesus said, ‘If they are thirsty, give them water,’” she tells him.
Veldjesgraaf responds: “You know what? These are not humans, you dumb frickin’ broad.”
He threatens to call the police and then asks: “What you got in that water?”
When she replies that it is just water, he says: “How do I know?”
Ontario hog farmer Eric Van Boekel, who owned the pigs, filed a police complaint the next day.
An online petition calling to drop the charges against Krajnc has over 125,000 signatures.
