What a weird sight - some bloke was standing outside Southwark tube just now with a live alpaca. People were taking pictures with their kids and the animal and the guy had a bucket for "voluntary donations". Got to love London sometimes :)

There have been reported sightings for the past week of this alpaca in the streets of SE1

Saw the Alpaca (apparently called Babe) in Borough Market on Saturday afternoon.

Not sure where it's kept, but said beast travels around a number of schools to allow inner city kids a chance to meet wildlife.

Alpaca's aren't wild! But I'm sure they're interesting to the kids anyway.

I also saw a guy walking an amazing brown alpaca down the street - his name is babe he said - i asked what he was doing - he said he was collecting donations which support the alpacas as they go in as special treats to all local primary schools in north london for free.I must say it really made my day to see somethink diffrent other than the boaring traffic. -

Another alpaca spotting (not the same animal - a white one - but part of the same project by the looks of it) on Union Street just after 7pm yesterday.

Lovely animal...
