An infamous vegan activist unleashed at racegoers at a Melbourne Cup event in Perth accusing them of ‘paying for murder’ before being hauled out by police in front of heckling punters.
Tash Peterson, well known for her attention-grabbing displays and known as ‘Vegan Booty’ online, attended the Ascot Races on Tuesday disguised as a reveller in a lacy black dress before pulling on a white t-shirt that read: ‘You bet, they die’.
She was eventually led away by police, but not before hurling abuse and slogans at attendees as she was escorted out of the venue – copping a spray from irritated racegoers.
The controversial herbivore was filmed hysterically yelling at racegoers as police led her away on Tuesday, to the amusement of many in attendance.
‘All of these gentle beings are going to be brutally murdered,’ she screamed.
‘These beautiful, innocent beings. You bet, they die.
‘You have paid for their murder, their blood in on your hands.’

Ms Peterson, 27, was joined by other vegan activists at the Melbourne Cup event in Perth as they protested the continuation of the race despite six horse deaths in recent years.
The notorious demonstrator and her friends were chanting a series of figures, claiming ‘149 horses were killed on track last year’ and referring to the anti-horse racing website ‘HorseRacingKills.com’.
But revellers didn’t seem fazed by her presence with many laughing as she screamed at them while being led away.
‘Take her away, take her away,’ one man can be heard shouting.
The activist had been banned from entering licensed venues in Western Australia after similar protests, with that coming to an end on Tuesday.
‘Melbourne Cup Day celebrates and glamourises animal abuse, slavery and murder. It is an abhorrent, outdated and barbaric event,’ she wrote.
‘On average, the racing career of a horse will end when they are between 2-3 years old. However, a horse’s natural life span is 25-30 years.
‘Today my liquor license ban ended, so we went into the Ascot Races and protested against the horse racing industry,’ she posted on Instagram

‘Once they are considered no longer profitable, they are murdered.’
‘Today my liquor license ban ended, so we went into the Ascot Races and protested against the horse racing industry,’ she posted on Instagram, before being met by a barrage of criticism – but also a flurry of support from animal-lovers.
She also has posted a number of pictures of bloody horse skulls on her social media accounts.
Her post received hundreds of comments, with most supporting her in demonstrating against horse racing.
‘I think a lot of non-vegans would agree with you that horse racing and greyhound racing is barbaric!,’ one person commented.
‘Amazing work standing up for the victims of such a selfish and exploitative industry,’ another wrote.
Some objected to her behaviour however, with one person labelling her ’embarrassing’ while others suggested many horses ‘love to race’.

Ms Peterson put on a similar display in September at the Perth Royal Show, storming the event and disrupting a cattle judging event by leaping over the barrier and screaming ‘these beautiful and innocent beings are going to be brutally murdered and shot in the head’.
As horrified onlookers including children watched on, an irate farmer with a beef against vegans manhandled the activist and ejected her from the exhibit.
The glamorous Instagram and OnlyFans star told Daily Mail Australia she was then subjected to a torrent of abuse by unimpressed farmers who became violent.
Footage of the chaotic scene was posted to Ms Peterson’s social media pages, as she interrupted the family event to preach about an ‘animal holocaust’.

The week-long Perth Royal Show dates all the way back to 1834, showcasing the very best of Western Australia agriculture and livestock with rides, events and other entertainment making it a mainstay on the city’s calendar.
But Ms Peterson, who made headlines last month after covering herself in her own menstrual blood and protesting at a Louis Vuitton store, said the annual event is a load of bull.
‘The Royal Show is a brainwashing and propaganda event run by animal agriculture Western Australia; it celebrates and glamorises animal abuse, slavery and murder… in the meat, dairy, egg, leather, wool, animal entertainment and racing industries,’ she said.
‘Today animal rights activists targeted the judging ring for “beef” cattle where they are judged based on how good their muscle and flesh looks for human consumption.
‘They are viewed as nothing but objects and commodities; but are in fact sentient individuals who are victims of this holocaust.’

When asked about whether it was appropriate to shout animal abuse slogans in the presence of young children, Ms Peterson said she has no regrets.
‘Children have the right to know what is happening to their beloved animal friends,’ she said.
‘No child would want to see animals being hurt and would be horrified if they found out they were eating an animal.’
In the comments sections some heaped praise on the angry farmer for not putting up with any ‘woke’ vegan nonsense.
‘Can’t believe how easily they removed you vegan clowns, clearly they eat meat, makes them strong,’ one person wrote.
Another said: ‘I wanna buy that man a beer. Or a carton!’
But many of Ms Peterson’s devoted fans condemned the man’s aggressiveness and heavy-handed actions declaring the animal rights activist an ‘inspiration’.

In the past the serial protester has dressed up as a cow and demonstrated in the meat section of a busy supermarket, invaded the pitch at an AFLW match and donned a blood-soaked apron while screaming at patrons in a KFC.
Her controversial antics have led police and policymakers in her home state of WA to describe her as ‘Australia’s biggest pest’.
She has been arrested numerous times for her in-your-face-style of protesting but insists she will continue to ‘speak up for animals who can’t speak up for themselves.’
