Anita  Krajnc is the co-founder of Toronto Pig Save, a vegetarian organization that holds vigils for animals on their way to slaughter. She clashed with the driver of a vehicle carrying pigs to a pork processing plant in Toronto in June. In a video, Anita told the driver to give pigs water, but he responded rudely and insisted to call 911.

Kranj said after a pre-trial meeting this week: ‘It’s an outrage. It’s insane to charge someone with criminal mischief for doing that.’

TPS activists frequently post videos to their Facebook recording the last moments of pigs, cows, goats and different livestock.

When the charges were declared, Anita said: ‘Offering water to a thirsty pig is an act of compassion.

‘It isn't only a right, but a requirement we all share. Inflicting the pigs to suffer within the 1st place is what is wrong.

‘I face these criminal charges with dignity, knowing that truth and justice are on my aspect.’

Anita’s video footage shows her approaching the stationary vehicle in city, Vermont, to tip water into the mouths of a number of pigs, before the driver approaches. But once seeing the footage, New York farmer-turned-vegan Bob Comis disputed the pigs, who are pursy in the clip, were all exhibiting signs of ‘severe heat stress’ and required help.
