Death-row alpaca Geronimo's heartbroken owner is cherishing every minute with him as he awaits execution08/20/2021
GERONIMO the alpaca’s heartbroken owner is cherishing every minute with him as she prepares for his execution.
Helen Macdonald, 50, is dreading his imminent death and has hand-fed him his favourite foods.
The veterinary nurse is even more anxious after being given vague details about when the TB-positive animal’s firing squad will arrive.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said they would not visit the farm at Wickwar, Gloucs, from Wednesday afternoon “until at least 5pm” yesterday.
As the grim deadline passed Helen told The Sun: “Every moment I get with him is special as it could be the last. I’ve been hand-feeding him as it’s a bit more personal.”
Geronimo has also become agitated, she said, adding: “He can sense my anxiety. I hate these strange times Defra are giving.”
The eight-year-old has twice tested positive for bovine TB but Helen claims the results are false.
A legal bid to save him failed on Wednesday.
