Pig activist trial resumes today in Burlington
Closing arguments are scheduled for today in Burlington in the trial of a woman charged with mischief after giving water to pigs on their way to slaughter.
Anita Krajnc, an activist with the group Toronto Pig Save, has pleaded not guilty to a mischief charge in the incident, although she has admitted that she gave water to the pigs.
Her lawyers will argue Krajnc was acting in the public good, and was therefore not breaking the law.
But the Crown argues that the pigs are the property of the farmer, and Krajnc was interfering with his property when she gave them water.
