“After about 15 minutes of it parading around the farmer eventually turned up with some food to try and tempt it back home,” Armstrong, who is an Ilkley Town club member, told video licensor Storyful. “It eventually gave in and was escorted off the field of play and the game resumed.”
Now, how long will it be before Ilkley adopts the alpaca as their new mascot?
