Vegan activist Tash Peterson protests horse racing industry at Ascot Racecourse Perth: Melbourne Cup


Infamous animal rights activist Tash Peterson has made headlines once again, this time for protesting at Ascot Racecourse by pouring red paint on the ground and screaming at punters as they entered the venue.

The 28-year-old in a video posted to her Facebook page is seen holding a wooden cross with the letters RIP as patrons entered the Perth racecourse on Melbourne Cup Day.

The irate herbivore is heard asking a supporter ‘should I start the blood now?’ before tipping out the paint and yelling comments such as, ‘Horse racing kills, ‘You bet they die’ and ‘If you go to the races you’ve got blood on your hands’.

She engaged patrons entering the racecourse, including one man who confronted her over oil being put on a track in Melbourne, calling Ms Peterson a ‘w***er’. 

Ms Peterson responded by saying, ‘If you’re not vegan you’re an animal abuser’ before pouring pouring the red paint near his shoes.

Ms Peterson told punters, ‘You should be ashamed of yourselves, blatant animal abusers’ and ‘These are the sounds of horses being brutally murdered’ as she blared the sound of a horse in distress.

After around ten minutes, two police officers approached the OnlyFans star and asked her to move on and join the peaceful protest opposite the racecourse.

Ms Peterson complied with police orders and as she joined the other protesters she was met with wild cheers.

The stunt comes as she lost her appeals against two disorderly behaviour convictions in the Supreme Court on Tuesday.

In August she said she was on the ‘wrong side of the law’ but the ‘right side of history’ as she made it clear she would appeal the convictions.

‘I have received a prosecution notice and summons to court for three criminal offences for one protest that I did in June,’ she posted to Instagram.

‘Two charges of trespass in Outback Jack’s and Old Shanghai in Northbridge and one charge of disorderly conduct as a result of raising awareness about the animal holocaust in the meat, dairy and egg industries.

‘I currently have a criminal record of three convictions as a result of my activism and will be appealing two convictions of disorderly conduct in the Supreme Court this September.’

In the Outback Jacks incident, Ms Peterson screamed at diners and blasted distressing sounds of animals in pain from a loudspeaker.

She roamed around the restaurant shouting at people as they ate, ‘There is blood on your hands if you’re not a vegan’.

Ms Peterson is now banned from all licensed venues in WA.

The activist is known for dressing up as a cow and demonstrating in the meat section of supermarkets, invading the pitch at an AFLW match, and donning a blood-soaked apron while screaming at patrons in a KFC and Coles

In September she laid down in a human-sized meat tray in Sydney’s busy Pitt Street Mall almost naked, covered in blood and wrapped up in plastic like a slab of meat. 

In August she also celebrated the anniversary of her ‘most powerful protest’ by stripping down and smearing ‘blood’ in a Louis Vuitton store for a second time, one year after pulling a similar stunt.

In the original protest, she marched topless through the Louis Vuitton store in Perth, smeared with her own menstrual blood.

She was subsequently fined $3,500 by a Perth magistrate for the display.
