U.S. Secret Service agents stepped on stage next to Hillary Clinton after protesters interrupted a Thursday campaign rally in Las Vegas.

The incident occurred early during Clinton’s speech at IBEW Local 357 Hall.

The protesters were animal rights activists.

"Apparently these people are here to protest (Donald) Trump because Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals," Clinton said.

Trump, the GOP presidential candidate, has said his sons "love to hunt." They've been pictured with dead exotic game animals, including a leopard and elephant tail.

Killing endangered species is highly controversial and illegal in some places.
