An alpaca from Taumarunui in New Zealand is at the center of a big debate in the United Kingdom.

The Alpaca is called Geronimo and a court order says it must be put down because it tested positive for bovine tuberculosis (bTB) twice.

However, there is a large community of people who are trying to save Geronimo’s life.

Several people have taken to social media asking the government to reconsider the order to put Geronimo down.

However, the ministers involved, and even Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have not changed their minds.

Geronimo’s owner, farmer Helen MacDonald, has made many public pleas for the alpaca’s life, assuring that the animal is now healthy.

MacDonald claims the diagnosis of bTB is based on inaccurate testing.

  1. I think the test is fake, he looks healthy and looks like his owners care for him good.
    He should live.
