Caesar the Llama adds some four-legged support to the anti-racism movement

All walks of life are joining the Black Lives Matter rallies.

And in Orgeon, that includes a llama named Caesar.

Caesar the No Drama Lama is marching with those protesting police brutality and raising awareness about racism in the wake of death of George Floyd.

The llama attended a rally in Portland on June 2 much to the surprise of attendees.

And no, there was no intention to become a spectacle — or detract from the BLM mission.

Larry McCool, from Mystic Llama Farm, often brings Caesar to charitable events, as a therapy animals and happens to support the movement calling for racial equality.

“Anyone who was offended, please know our intentions are good & we ask that you support & focus on #BlackLivesMatter#SalemForFloyd#JusticeForGeorgeFloyd#EndPoliceBrutality#EndQualifiedImmunit,” the Caesar’s Twitter account noted.

And, Caesar plans to keep marching.

He’ll be in Salem on Saturday at another rally calling for justice for Floyd, who died while in police custody in Minneapolis, where four police officers now face charges.

And so, Caesar will march on with a message.

Participants can find him by the voter registration table, where hand sanitizer will be provided as well as hugs — to those wearing masks.

“This event is PEACEFUL and any agitators will be asked to leave,” his Facebook page notes. “What’s Caesar’s name after all, but THE NO DRAMA LLAMA!”

Oh, and in case you’re wondering about Caesar’s safety in crowds.

He seems to be totally cool with it — and dogs, too.
