Los Angeles Rams linebackers Bobby Wagner and Takkarist McKinley tackled an animal rights activist who disrupted the team’s game against the San Francisco 49ers during Monday Night Football.
Just before halftime, a member of Direct Action Everywhere, an animal rights group, who were attending Monday night’s game ran across the 49ers Levi’s Stadium with a device releasing red and pink smoke to raise awareness about a massive pig factory farm allegedly hiding its abuses inside the facility.
The nonprofit reports Allison Fluty and Alex Taylor were cited, with one still in police custody, after running onto the field at separate points during the second quarter.
ESPN reports one evaded security and rushed toward the Rams’ sideline when McKinley and Wagner took matters into their own hands and laid out the protester near the 40-yard line. The other protester ran out onto the field with a similar device earlier in the game but was apprehended by security. more
