Woman Faces Jail Time for Giving Water to Pigs on their Way to Slaughter [Watch]
Take a look at this video of a woman trying to give some pigs on their way to a slaughterhouse some water. According to the site LittleThings.com, the pigs were in a truck just south of Toronto on their way to their deaths when a woman with the Members of Toronto Pig Save, who are often found standing at their local traffic islands to “bear witness” to the animals being sent off to slaughterhouses, gave them some water.
She claims the pigs are thirsty, exhausted and being treated poorly. The man driving the truck insists that she not give anything to the pigs.
The confrontation is very heated and awkward.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. While it does pull on your heartstrings to see this kind of thing... at the same time, why, and how did this situation come about? And isn't it weird that all of them have cameras and are recording the incident? It almost seems like they were all trying to catch a viral moment in the making, doesn't it?
