The fate of the alpacas, who has twice tested positive for contagious bovine tuberculosis, recently made headlines outside of England. The British Department of the Environment killed the animal to prevent further diseases. Owner Helen MacDonald says the tests are unreliable and considers Geronimo to be healthy.
On their farm in the village of Wickwar in western England, about 30 alpaca breeders, residents and activists banded together to guard Geronimo around the clock. Supporters wanted to oppose the killing squad for the alpaca – if necessary with barricades and barricades.
According to the Palestinian News Agency, the Environment Ministry no longer wanted to carry out the killing on Wednesday. They want to give the owner the opportunity to prepare for it.
Alpacas originally come from the Andes Mountains in South America. But now small camels are bred in Europe. Also in Germany, hiking trips and alpaca vacations on alpaca farms are no longer uncommon.
