Boris Johnson condemns Geronimo the alpaca to death as ‘we need to move ahead’ & NO plans to test him a final time
BORIS Johnson condemned Geronimo the alpaca to death today – as his spokesperson said there were NO plans to test him a final time.
Last night his tearful owner Helen, 50, vowed to take a bullet for him as she waits anxiously to see if Defra send in a team to put down her chocolate critter.Helen is fighting to save her beloved alpaca[/caption]
The Sun has highlighted Geronimo’s tragic fight as Helen fights for every hour of life she can give him.
A warrant came in to force yesterday which means medics can come onto her farm in South Gloucestershire to perform the lethal injection.
The stud animal is due to be destroyed by Defra after twice testing positive for bovine TB – but she argued the tests are inaccurate.
She has accused the Environment Secretary of telling “total lies” in order to support the “killing of a healthy animal in front of the whole world”.
George Eustice said on Thursday that Geronimo was tested “using a highly specific and reliable test”.
Responding to the statement, Ms Macdonald said: “It’s a total load of lies, the testing has never been validated.
“He’s still standing by such a ridiculous claim because they’ve made errors of judgment and they’ve been caught out.
“If he’s willing to kill a healthy animal in front of the whole world without testing him properly first, then it’s a sorry state of affairs.
“And it will be for the world to see. Because if he sends some poor person down here with a gun to shoot Geronimo then it will get filmed by the world’s media.”The mite tested positive for TB when he came to Britain[/caption] Helen and her alpaca, who is living in isolation on her farm[/caption]
