Vegan activist Tash Peterson from Perth tackled in AFLW game at Optus Stadium by Kiara Bowers

An animal rights activist was tackled by a star player after he invaded the field during the very first western derby AFL Women’s.

Protestor Tash Peterson, 26, walked into the oval with a black “right to save” flag at Perth’s Optus Stadium late in the first half of the Fremantle and West Coast match on Saturday.

Fremantle midfielder Kiara Bowers made a brief work of Mrs. Peterson, grabbed her and held her shirt while guards rushed to hold the vegan activist.

In addition to appearing in the AFLW broadcast, Mrs. Peterson’s stunt was also streamed live to Facebook by the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere (DXE).

Mrs. Peterson smothered herself earlier in fake blood and stood in December last year with a fake butchered pig under her arm in the Coles and Woolworths stores.

In live stream images of the protest, Mrs. Peterson with her flag in hand can jump the fence on the oval.

With tights that said ‘vegan booty’ and a ‘right to save’ crop top, the activist made a straight line to the center of the field, where she was tackled by Bowers.

“As you can see, Tash Peterson has just been taken off the field. She’ll probably be arrested, “the woman who recorded the video said.

Dockers star Bowers was the best on the ground in the 45-point Fremantle victory, with 13 sales and 18 tackles.

“We’re here to play football and we just wanted to continue the game,” Bowers said after the landslide victory.

The star player joked that her tackle from the demonstrator should have counted as an extra tackle, as she was just three of beating the AFLW tackle record of 21.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Peterson received a three-year ban from the Optus Stadium and pulled a leg muscle out of the field.

DXE posted another video from Mrs. Peterson, filmed before the game, explaining what the groups’ “right to save” were. “We believe that if an animal is sick, suffering or dying, we have the right to help them,” she said in the video

After the game, DXE’s Perth page posted a debriefing video in which Mrs. Peterson said the protest “couldn’t have been better, really ‘.

“There was security around the oval and there was a man about 10 meters away from me, so I was afraid they would catch me almost immediately, but I managed to cross,” she said.

“We believe that if an animal is sick, suffering or dying, we have the right to help them,” she said in the video.

The video contains images of DXE member James Warden who was carrying a calf around his shoulders.

Mr. Warden has denied that he entered White Rocks Dairy near Bunbury, WA and stole a $ 1500 freesia calf in October 2018.

“My friends rescued a lump calf called Theodore from a dairy farm here in WA. Theodore was taken to a rescue center to live the rest of his life in peace, but when the police found out, they brought him back to the farm, “Mrs. Peterson said in the clip.

“Bobby calves like Theodore are often killed only five days old.”

On Christmas Eve last year, Mrs. Peterson entered supermarkets with a stereo sound of cow and pig sounds. She called on the supermarkets to reveal where their meat “really comes from.”

Tash Peterson, dressed in a bloody apron with the head of a fake pig under her arm and a face mask, protested in stores in Western Australia.

On the back of her shirt it said: “Je” “food” fought for their lives. That should leave a bad taste in your mouth. “

The 26-year-old held a sign that said, “Coles / Woolworths. Tell them the truth.”

Mrs. Peterson went to the butcher’s section of the supermarkets and remained silent while a stereo sound of cows and pigs was slaughtered, much to the dismay of customers shopping for their Christmas meat.
