I see that the owner of an alpaca in the UK has gone all the way to the High Court to prevent the animal from being euthanised.

The alpaca, called Geronimo, has tested positive for TB, twice. A hearing is to be held on the animal’s future in the coming weeks.

The animal’s owner is a veterinary nurse and has said that the TB tests are unreliable and the animal is healthy.

A spokesperson for Boris Johnson has even commented on the issue. If only as much attention was paid to the plight of farmers with herds locked up due to TB.
