Giving dehydrated pigs water is not a criminal act

The story as reported is: On the summer day of June 22, a Van Boekel Hog Farms slaughterhouse transportation truck headed to Fearman's Pork Inc. was stationary, in Burlington, Vermont.  Anita Krajnc, the co-founder of Toronto Pig Save, and another activist stopped to give the pigs water and document their experience. The driver confronted the two women and told them to stop giving the pigs water. While Krajnc asked the driver to show compassion, he threatened her with physical assault and called the police.

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Toronto Pig Save shared more than 50 vegan coconut bacon BTLs with drivers, including a couple of pig transport truck drivers at our morning vigil on Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012. The vegan BLT giveaway occured on a traffic island dubbed Pig Island at Lake Shore and Strachan in downtown Toronto -- where the pig transport trucks pass in a busy intersection enroute to ""Quality Meat Packers" slaughterhouse was an exhilarating day, full of emotions.
