Geronimo is EXECUTED: Defra officials kill condemned alpaca after dragging him away from farm under escort as police clash with animal rights activists
The Daily Mail says Geronimo the alpaca has been euthanised today after being seized from his Gloucestershire farm by a Government team in boiler suits and masks being protected by dozens of police officers sent in to fight off protesters.
The four-year battle to save him after he twice tested positive for bovine tuberculosis ended this morning and the sad moment he was tied up and carted away was captured by the live webcam set up to watch the South American mammal a month ago.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed around an hour later they had put the animal down, just days before the destruction warrant it won at the High Court expired.
