‘Caesar the No Drama Llama’
‘Caesar the No Drama Llama’ and the animal’s caretaker Larry McCool have attended the Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Portland.
The llama, which comes from Mystic Llama Farm in Jefferson, Oregon, has been said to have a positive influence during the protests.
In an interview for The Sun, Larry spoke of the calming effect ‘Caesar the No Drama Llama’ brought once people saw the llama activist.
“Everyone seemed really happy to have him there, even those who were confused by his presence…he was definitely a good morale booster.
“I was only there for about two hours but it was an extremely peaceful and positive protest, those leading it made sure to talk about the impact of police brutality and bring up many of the hundreds of names of people who fall victim to it every day.”
Larry’s Mystic Llama farm is also home to “Chick A Boom & Pepito among others”, according to the farm’s official Facebook page.
Larry has owned the farm for more than 20 years and they often visit retirement and care homes. They also visit schools and take part in different events to cheer up people of all ages.
