A security camera image of two men in an alpaca pen in Caboolture. Photo: SuppliedPolice have released CCTV footage showing two men baiting alpacas at a school farm, before beating them savagely with iron bars north of Brisbane.
Male alpacas Harley and Harrison died after the attack at Caboolture State High School in the early hours of Saturday morning. One died instantly, while the other had to be euthanised.
‘‘Horses that shared the enclosure were moved out of the pen by the offenders and were not injured,’’ police said in a statement today.
Police hope the CCTV footage will help lead them to the pair responsible for the fatal attack.
One of the offenders was wearing a blue T-shirt, blue jeans and white shoes, while the other was wearing a white jumper, black shorts and a red cap.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Australia is offering a $1000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.
If caught, the offenders could face a $110,000 fine or two years’ jail.
The 12-year-old alpacas, one black and one white, had spent most of their lives together on the school’s eight hectare farm and were an important part of the school’s agriculture program.
