Sky News published this video item, entitled “Geronimo the alpaca killed by government vets” – below is their description.
Geronimo the alpaca has been killed by government vets “to prevent the spread of disease”, despite a lengthy legal battle to save his life.
The animal was put down after being taken from its farm in Gloucestershire, days before a destruction warrant ordering its death was due to expire on 4 September.
The alpaca had twice tested positive for bovine TB, but his owner claims the testing process was flawed and Geronimo was a “healthy, happy animal”.
