Two charges from a later in­ci­dent stayed against woman who gave water to pigs

The Hamilton Spectator - - LO­CAL - BURLING­TON POST

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.
