Anita Krajnc, the 49-year-old Toronto woman on trial for feeding water to pigs heading for slaughter in Burlington, told court Monday that parents who feed bacon to their children are abusing their offspring.
If your child has ever consumed a standard breakfast, you’ve committed child abuse!
Krajnc, an activist aligned with Toronto Pig Save, is fighting a mischief charge stemming from her actions on June 22, 2015. Despite pleading not guilty, she has admitted to providing water for the pigs.
Krajnc’s defence team insists that she was not breaking the law because she was doing something in the public’s best interests, while the Crown points out that she was interfering with another person’s property.
The activist claimed that she would call the authorities if she witnessed a parent providing a child with a juicy strip of bacon.
She also told the court that she doesn’t see a truck full of pigs. Instead, she sees “a truck full of four-year-old children.”
