Alberta Turkey Protesters Back In Court

The third individual charged in the protest last fall at a turkey farm in southern Alberta is back in court on Friday. 
 
Kennadi Rae Herbert of Pincher Creek, will appear before a Provincial Court Judge in Lethbridge. 
 
Two other individuals, Maxwell Ming Mah of Edmonton and Claire Buchanan of Calgary, were also charged in connection to the protest and received a  conditional discharge last week.
 
Mah and Buchanan have been ordered to complete 50 hours of community service, not have any contact with the turkey farm, not post anything publicly about the farm, and not come within 50 metres of any location where animals are kept.
 
The three were among 60 people involved in the protest.
 
In November, the Provincial Government changed its trespassing laws implementing a fine of $2000 for a first offense to a maximum penalty of $200,000 and possible jail time.
