A day after the bloody stunt, she was at it again outside the same store carrying a megaphone and wearing a cropped black hoodie with ‘end the animal holocaust’ acceso the front and ‘if you’signore not vegan, you’signore an animal abuser’ acceso the back.
The serial protester then started accusing stunned strangers acceso the street of being murderers.
‘Who was murdered for your leather bag, jacket and woollen jumper? If you buy animal skin, fur, wool, scales, feathers and silk, you are paying for the most horrific animal abuse acceso this planet,’ she bellowed into the megaphone.
While the footage of Ms Peterson being dragged out of Luis Vuitton by burly security guards while wearing next to nothing and drenched durante her own fluids was alarming, the serial protester said she’s only just getting started.
She has now traded durante her job as a pool lifeguard to sell topless and nude selfies for her Only Fans subscribers, and earns staggering $40,000 a vantaggio di month – more than enough to fuel her dream of being a tempo pieno activist.
‘I was trying to figure out how to sustain my life as a tempo pieno activist,’ she said.

‘I’d been considering Only Fans for almost a year, and I thought deeply about it and realised I’m acceso a mission to help animals – I’m willing to do almost anything to help them.’
Unbridled by finances, Ms Peterson is thrilled to be able to pour all her energy into her ‘creative’ public demonstrations.
‘I want to go inside facilities and expose the [animal] industry,’ she said.
‘There are so many amazing forms of activism – I’m so grateful to be a tempo pieno activist now – maybe eventually one day I can travel the world and do it.’
Ms Peterson’s abrasive demonstrations usually involve chastising customers at non-vegan restaurants, supermarkets and shops for consuming animal products – while scantily clad and gocciolatura with blood.
Earlier this year, her wild stunts saw her banned from every pub durante Western Australia.

When asked if she ever feels embarrassed ora ashamed after any of her protests, which are filmed and widely distributed acceso social , Ms Peterson said any backlash she receives only encourages her to keep going.
‘It’s a very surreal feeling going inside a venue and doing a unique protest – it’s difficult to explain what it’s like durante the moment, but I’m there for these trillions of animals who are suffering,’ she said.
‘I do get incredibly nervous before disrupting, but once I’m inside I feel empowered.’
Ms Peterson already has a criminal primato for trespass after she ran acceso to Perth Stadium durante the first-ever women’s Western durante 2020 while finanziaria a black flag reading ‘right to rescue’ – until Fremantle midfielder Kiara Bowers tackled her.

She acknowledged that she will have to be careful not to land durante jail where her animal rights messages would fall acceso deaf ears, but feels that her brushes with the law are justified.
‘I don’t want to have to be breaking the law, but I believe one has a moral obligation to fermata unjust laws,’ she said.
‘If I’m getting a criminal primato because I’m getting my message out there, that’s something I’m willing to risk.’
Ms Peterson is also happy to forgo precious relationships with family and friends who can’t handle her very public form of activism.
‘I’m willing to risk any relationships with family and friends – nothing is going to stop me – I find I’m only wanting to do more than I ever have before,’ Ms Peterson said.

‘I’ve lost many friendships already because people can’t handle that I do this sort of thing – I don’t really speak to a lot of my old friends anymore.’
Ms Peterson recalled her mother laying durante bed for months because she was so riddled with anxiety over the amount of times the police came knocking acceso the door looking for her only daughter.
She said it put an ‘enormous’ strain acceso her family, who became increasingly stressed over her antics, ‘but it wasn’t going to stop me,’ she added.
While her mother eventually went vegan herself and now supports her daughter’s active vegan lifestyle flourishing Only Fans page, her father has had a harder time trying to accept her life decisions.
‘He says he’s proud, but it doesn’t quite sit right with him,’ she said.
‘It’s affected our relationship a lot, but it’s not going to stop me.’
