So, an alpaca walks into a bar ...

Wakka the alpaca has become Trentham East’s most unusual pub-goer after saddling up to the bar at the Pig and the Whistle.

Owner Vicky McCurdy, who owns Plum Tuckered Inn bed and breakfast, said Wakka thought of herself as a dog.

“You yell her name and she’ll come running,” Ms McCurdy said.

Pub owner Barbara Middleton said the Pig and the Whistle was popular for pets — and had quite a history of unusual patrons.
