The pig trial of the century is slopping its way through the court system in Burlington.
An activist, who went little too far generating publicity for her cause, was charged after giving water to a pig in a transport truck enroute to slaughter.
She says pigs are individuals too and should be respected. (Apparently more so than those who like bacon?)
One activist who flew in for the pig trial asked, how you can prosecute compassion?
When you are talking about Canada’s’ food chain, it’s quite simple.
Keith Warriner, a prof from Guelph, who specializes in such things said on the show, anything that compromises food biosecurity can contaminate the chain.
It simply cannot be allowed to happen.
He went onto say feeding one or two pigs in a truck full does more to create stress and trauma than leaving them alone as they will start to fight for the limited supply.
But then again it’s really not about a humane food chain, or a pig, it’s about a group that does not eat meat and they don’t want you too either.
The fortunate thing about living in a free country is you’re free to make up your own mind.
The unfortunate thing is, there are always those who will still try to change it, all disguised as a pig.
