Geronimo the alpaca was killed after UK legal row by UK Government officials. The fate of animal diagnosed with bovine tuberculosis had become a major issue in the UK. #Geronimo tested positive twice for bovine tuberculosis (bTB), which led to the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (#Defra) ordering him to be euthanized. Owner Helen Macdonald disputed the test results and mounted several High Court challenges to save Geronimo. Should the goverment be killing animals in this way? What are the ramifications?
