A farmer has become fed up of his turkeys being gobbled up and has turned to Alpacas to be their saviors, as reported by the dailymail.
There are over 30,000 free-range turkeys on the King Coppice Farm in Cookham Dean, many of which were killed by wild foxes recently. The foxes, according to Tom Copas (managing director), would jump over electric fences and dodge armed guards to try and get at the turkeys.
Mr. Copas decided enough was enough, so he decided to bring in special bodyguards for the turkeys, Alpacas! The farm had suffered hundreds of turkey deaths in recent months, after they found their way into the turkey hutches.
The Alpacas were brought in and have been fighting off the foxes to great effect. The animals are used in South America for the same purpose, as they have great protection instincts. The farms managing director, Copa, says the Guards have proven themselves worthy of the job.
Two Alpacas were taken on by the farm and now the foxes have to find somewhere else to torment.
