Anita Krajnc, 49, a woman currently on trial on mischief charges for giving water to pigs that were headed to slaughter last summer was arrested again Wednesday morning, this time at the scene of an accident where another truck full of pigs headed to the same pork plant flipped over in Burlington, Ont.

Krajnc testified in her own defence in court on Monday.

It is unclear what charges Krajnc is now facing. “We will release further information in regards to this occurrence at a later time,” said Halton Police Sgt. Barry Malciw.


Truck transporting 150+ pigs flips over yards away from slaughterhouse – pigs walk that last distance.

The truck lost control and flipped over just after 7 a.m., Halton Police say, near the corner of Appleby Line and Harvester Road. That’s on the corner of the Fearmans Pork Plant, where the animals were headed for slaughter.

Some of the pigs were roaming free for a time, but Halton police Staff Sergeant Peter Corner told the CBC that they have since been “corralled.”
