As she is escorted out of the store by two police officers she continues screaming as customers inside the store mock her.

‘If you consume animal products you are responsible for this horrific violence,’ she says.

‘You are paying for murder. The blood is on your hands.’

She continues to spread her message about the violence and death involved in the dairy industry, urging customers to watch the graphic documentary Dominion’.  

But customers are unimpressed by her antics, filming her and laughing as they wait for their orders.

‘All our animals are just as beautiful as our beloved dogs and cats, and we’re forcing them into murder factories just to consume their flesh and secretions,’ she says..

After a minute and a half a police officer asks her to leave and she walks out with the two police by her side.

As she is on her way out a young male runs after her to offer her some chicken.
