Justice David Harris said that he’s not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that longtime animal-rights activist Anita Krajnc interfered with the farmer’s property when she offered water to pigs being trucked into the Fearman’s meat-packing plant in Burlington.
The farmer laid charges against her and the court case has drawn high-profile media coverage.
She has drawn support from animal-rights activists around the world, and her trial one of the biggest animal-law cases in Canadian history, writes the Globe and Mail.
“Did Ms. Krajnc obstruct, interrupt or interfere with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of the property? My simple answer to this question is, ‘No. She did not,’” Justice Harris wrote in his decision.
Ms. Krajnc was charged in September, 2015.
