Alpacas prove a hit at animal centre
6:00pm Saturday 24th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
TWO new arrivals have proved incredibly popular with visitors to an animal rescue centre.
Mistley Place Park has adopted a pair of four-year-old male alpacas called Isambard and Tiberius.
Michael and Maureen Taylor, who run the centre, have seen the duo become a hit with visitors to the park.
“I was told that Isambard was the friendliest alpaca ever by the former owners and they have been proved correct,” said Michael.
“All you have to do is knock the gate and he comes over and gives you a kiss.
“I wouldn’t let him kiss me on the lips but I’ve seen some people get caught out by him!”
