    Meerkat keeper: Caroline Westlake arrives at court today A London Zoo worker glassed a female colleague in the face in a love triangle clash over a llama keeper, a court heard today.

    Meerkat expert Caroline Westlake, 30, hit Kate Sanders with a wine glass at the staff Christmas party, slicing open the monkey keeper’s face, Westminster magistrates’ court was told.
    The pair had been feuding over Adam Davies, who had dated Ms Sanders for five years before breaking up.
    Mr Davies and Westlake later began dating and tried to avoid Ms Sanders. But she would send them text messages and pictures whenever they were together, the court heard.

    The feud came to a head at the party in the zoo’s Prince Albert Suite on December 8. The court heard Ms Sanders saw the couple and made a disparaging comment about Westlake, triggering a row.
    Describing the incident, Westlake said: "When I got to the cloakroom I remember looking up and seeing her standing there."
    She added that she felt a bit uncomfortable after hearing the comments earlier in the night, but did not want to leave and give the impression that she was "terrified".

    Westlake continued: "She (Ms Sanders) said 'Caroline, I want to apologise for what you heard me saying earlier in the bathrooms', and then I remember saying 'why did you say it? I am trying to be nice, trying to be civil, I don't understand what I have done wrong to you'.
    "And then I remember her saying 'you're dating my ex-boyfriend'."
    "It got really, really heated and she was saying everyone hates you, everyone says you're mad, no one likes you. She just kept screaming in my face. So then I said 'they say the same about you'.
    "She punched me in the side of my face. It kind of knocked me, knocked me back. And then it was like a split second struggle and I was standing apart from her and I remember seeing her face was cut, and I remember thinking 'how has this happened?'," she added.
    Prosecutor Richard Doolan said: “This ended with the defendant hitting the victim in the side of the face — when she hit the victim she had a wine glass in her hand.”
    Westlake, of Salisbury Road, Banstead, denies one count of assault by beating. The trial continues.

    Oh, I love those damn alpaca's. We really wanted to do an alpaca farm. We still might.

    An attorney down here was late to court because her trailer, carrying alpacas broke. She tried to do the farm thing and ended up moving back to the keys.

    I'm afraid because I know I'll be doing it 100% on my own. My SO says he'll be involved, but I don't believe him

    Why did she move back? I hear that alpaca's are relatively easy going creatures and easy to care for.

    Husband's aunt and uncle have an alpaca farm, Kris. They've definitely talked about giving it up at times (I think it's just not very profitable, but then they're not very web-savvy or anything and they feel they're too far out of town to do the farmer's market thing), but as far as I know they're still keeping on after maybe 10 years or so, and it does seem pretty easy-going. They all poop in a single pile! That poop, of course, makes great manure but it's also so convenient to keep things clean and tidy.

    I think there's quite a bit of expense getting started. You need good housing for them, they need vaccinations and vet care, trailers, getting someone to shear them, etc. It's all stuff I could learn to do eventually, but up front the cost is pretty hefty. Plus, you have to buy the alpaca

    They are just so damn cute!
