Two protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline climbed the rafters inside U.S. Bank Stadium to hang a banner during the Bears-Vikings game Sunday.
The banner urged Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank to divest from the four-state, $3.8 billion pipeline. Opponents contend the pipeline could affect drinking water and Native American artifacts.
In a statement, stadium operator SMG says two people climbed over a guard rail to access the ridge truss.
