Rams’ Bobby Wagner exposes animal rights activist who ran onto field


Los Angeles Rams star Bobby Wagner put a stop to any statement a person tried to make at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., during Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

The man was seen with a pink flare running across the field in the second quarter. After pulling off a couple of security guards, he ran to the Rams’ sideline and ran into Wagner, who put the infield invader on his back. Takkarist McKinley also helped Wagner.

The protester was then approached by security.

Direct Action Everywhere appeared to take responsibility for the demonstration as the activist group began retweeting videos of the ordeal. One person wrote that the protester was trying to raise awareness about the Smithfield trial, which began Monday.

Two activists were identified as Allison Fluty and Alex Taylor, both from the Bay Area. It seemed that Taylor was the person who was approached. They were wearing “RightToRescue.com” t-shirts. The organization said both Fluty and Taylor were subpoenaed.

Fluty and Taylor’s rally came nearly a month after two other Direct Action Everywhere activists were seen protesting during the Rams’ home opener against the Buffalo Bills.

Direct Action Everywhere said in a press release that two of its investigators, Paul Darwin Picklesimer and Wayne Hsiung, were charged with multiple felony counts for “rescuing” piglets from Smithfield Foods-owned Circle Four Farms. The incident occurred in 2017.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, five activists were charged in the incident. While three agreed to plea bargains, Picklesimer and Hsiung were charged with two felony counts of third-degree robbery and one class B misdemeanor count of robbery.

“Smithfield will do anything to protect their abuse and their profits,” Taylor said in a news release. “We must take action to stop the violence and create a better future for all of us.”
