Two charges from a later incident stayed against woman who gave water to pigs
BURLINGTON — A Toronto animal rights activist charged after she allegedly disobeyed police at the scene of an overturned transport truck carrying 190 pigs to slaughter has received good legal news.
The Halton Crown attorney stayed charges of obstructing police and breach of recognizance against Anita Krajnc.
Krajnc, 50, was charged in the aftermath of the crash outside Fearmans Pork Inc.’s plant at Appleby Line and Harvester Road on Oct. 5. Police allege she didn’t leave the scene when told to.
Forty-two pigs were killed or injured in the crash. Some were put down. The truck’s driver was charged. If Krajnc is charged with any offence in the next year, the stayed charges could be refiled.
Krajnc made headlines after she was charged for giving water to pigs in a truck stopped at a traffic light near the Fearmans plant on June 22, 2015.
A confrontation with the truck’s driver led to a mischief charge. She was acquitted in Milton court on May 4.
