A MAN is unable to decide whether it is more important to fight for the future of humanity or to fight for Geronimo the sad alpaca.
Nathan Muir of Hitchin admits that the UN’s code red for climate extinction does worry him, but not with the same urgency as the plight of a poor alpaca that has done nothing to hurt anyone.
He continued: “The wildfires in Greece, and California, and Siberia are terrifying but ultimately quite far away and sort of cool, like an action movie.
“While Geronimo the alpaca is a lovely woolly fella who faces government execution for no greater crime than failing a test for bovine TB when he’s not even a cow so it doesn’t apply.
“People say ‘if we don’t act on climate change immediately tens of thousands of alpacas will die’ but when I ask their names they don’t even know them.
“They’ve been going on about this warming for ages, they can last a bit longer. Meanwhile if I don’t post frantically about Geronimo on social media this could be his final week. My course is clear.”
Muir has previously decided to postpone action on climate change for Cecil the lion in 2015, Phoenix the foot-and-mouth miracle calf in 2001, and the Tamworth Two in 1998.
