The owner of Tragic Alpaca Geronimo condemned an autopsy last night that said he may have been found to be “clearly hiding” cow tuberculosis.
Helen MacDonald called the UK’s chief veterinary officer’s results “propaganda and deception”.
He spoke after the release of the results of an initial autopsy on Geronimo – which was taken down by government doctors last month.
Dr Christine Middlemass said she had received “many types of TB-like lesions” but would have to undergo further tests – with full results expected by the end of the year.
Angry Helen said: “What on earth means ‘like TB’?”
“Either he had TB or he didn’t, and we’re pretty sure he wasn’t. It is ridiculous for a chief vet to come up with such a report.
Dr. Middle Mess should seriously consider his position. We have told them to be open and transparent and they are not, they are just anxious to justify his murder.
Geronimo’s death was ordered following a test by the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) which said the tests showed he had TB in the cow.
Helen, speaking at a rally outside Defra’s main London headquarters yesterday, claimed the results were poor and wanted to review them.
Suraj helped campaign for the recovery of Geronimo, who joined celebrities. About 1.5 million British people signed an online petition to save him.
