On January 20, 2017 Julia Reinstein of Buzzfeed penned the story about a farmer taking his llamas, and two alpacas along with a dove to the 1/20/17 protest about trade justice in Washington D.C. on Inauguration Day, “This Farmer Brought Along Two Alpacas And A Llama To Protest The Inauguration. Their names are Thaddeus, Shay, and Tragically Cute.”
Ms. Reinstein wrote the following:
“The protester, named Ethan Abbott, told BuzzFeed News he brought the animals to remind people “we need to take back our farms and our food.”
“They love to march,” he said. “And they do it a lot.”
“Hubert the Dove will spend most of the day sleeping inside his coat, he said.”
“It’s time we get corporate money out of our government, out of our farms, out of our food, out of our families, out of our freedom,” he said.”
Another protester volunteered, “Oh yeah, and he BROUGHT THEM THERE ON THE METRO.”
Too bad Mr. Abbott didn’t bring his friends to the Women’s March.
