Grizzlies vs Timberwolves: Woman running on field, delays fourth game in ongoing protest against Glen Taylor

Another game in the Minnesota Timberwolves, another demonstrator on the field. This time, it happened during the third quarter of Game 4 between the Timberwolves and the Memphis Grizzlies.

Just a few minutes into the third quarter on Saturday evening, Patrick Beverly walked down the lane and made a pass to Karl-Anthony Towns. When he was about to shoot, a woman from the second row jumped up and tried to run across the field and disrupt the game.

But she didn’t get very far, as the security guard seated nearby was vigilant for her efforts and quickly chased after her before she could make any kind of protest. Play stopped as several other security personnel sprinted to the stadium and took the woman away without much fanfare.

The protester was part of a group called Direct Action Everywhere, and their anger was directed against Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor for alleged cruelty to animals on farms owned by his company, Rembrandt Enterprises.

“The group requests that Taylor donate all benefits related to highly pathogenic avian influenza he has received to public health charities and animal sanctuaries “as a fine, and commits not to take any such funds in connection with the recent outbreak and mass killing,” the press release from DxE announced. The NBA is no place for abusive factory growers, DxE is also asking to expedite the sale of the team — scheduled to transfer majority ownership to Baseball Hall of Fame Alex Rodriquez and businessman Mark Lower in 2023 — with Taylor immediately stepping down from day-to-day operations.”
