A furious farmer has tackled a vegan activist during a wild animal rights protest, grabbing her by the scruff of her shorts and hurling her out of a cattle pen.
Notorious herbivore Tash Peterson stormed Perth‘s Royal Easter Show on Tuesday 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 27-year-old and ejected her from the exhibit.
The glamorous Instagram and OnlyFans star, who has made a name for herself carrying out high-profile public stunts, 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.’

Some heaped praise on the farmer for hurling her out of the exhibit while others argued he was far too heavy-handed

When asked about whether it was appropriate to shout animal abuse slogans in the presence of young children, Ms Peterson widely known as V-gan Booty online, 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’.

Her controversial antics have led police and policymakers in her home state of WA to describe her as ‘Australia’s biggest pest’
‘Thanks, Tash!! Standing up for what is right and receiving such a cruel backlash must be very difficult but you do it for the animals and we are behind you!,’ one person wrote.
Another said: ‘Your courage inspires many, many people. And as it often does, gets the kind of reaction from the haters that shows their true colours.’
‘He had no right to touch you like that. What a f**king creep!’ a third commented.
Ms Peterson claims she was hurt in the incident, with some of her co-conspirators ‘assaulted and punched in the face’.
‘Some other onlookers said “I like to kill animals” and “I’m gonna have a steak tonight”,’ she said.
‘One staff member tried to help and said he would get our phones back as a couple of the phones were taken from us by the farmers.’

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.’
Ms Peterson is set to face court for disorderly conduct on October 5 for her August 21 protest at a Louis Vuitton store where she smeared ‘period blood’ on herself and marched around the luxury shop semi-naked shouting ‘if you’re not vegan you’re an animal abuser’.
