A vegan activist accused of being the ringleader behind the theft of a $1500 calf and a dead piglet from West Australian farms has admitted trespassing but denies stealing the animals.

The 25-year-old, who was fined earlier this year for trespassing and live streaming it on social media, has several co-accused in this case ranging in age from 21 to 36, two of whom were fined last week.
