Activist on Trial for Giving Pigs Water Appearing in Court Monday | PETA

The driver of the truck confronted Anita and hurled sexist slurs at her. For her compassion, she was charged with criminal mischief for interference with the “use, enjoyment or operation of property”—the “property” being the pigs. She initially faced up to 10 years in prison and now still faces up to six months in prison and a $5,000 fine. The story was picked up by media around the world and quickly went viral.
