Wednesday I caught shocking footage of a lorry load of pigs being transported to a slaughter-house. The pigs were traumatised and severely dehydrated but when animal rights activists tried to give the suffering animals water they were verbally abused by the driver.
He even threatened the two women with physical assault but ultimately called the police and it is the women who are facing criminal charges.
Perhaps what will shock you most is this was in Canada.
As I said already the two women who tried to ease the suffering of the animals now face criminal charges and a petition has been started:
On the summer day of June 22, a Van Boekel Hog Farms slaughterhouse transportation truck headed to Fearman's Pork Inc. was stationary, 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.
