  1. The fact that anyone could be charged with an offense for offering thirsty animals on the way to slaughter is disgraceful and outrageous. The real crime is what is happening to the animals. It reveals both the ugliness and the power of the agricultural industry. I hope this causes a backlash against them and that there will be no penalties for a compassionate person who cared enough to help.

    1. You are so right Marcia. What a warped world we live in if Anita is the one in the dock for a kind act, while the horror is what is being perpetrated on those poor animals. The world HAS to change. Let’s hope this farcical trial gets mega publicity and so this perversion of justice and social values is exposed for all to see. And let’s hope the court has the commonsense and decency to dismiss this ridiculous charge against a brave, kind woman.
