Llama keeps cops on their toes

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

It took a whole vil­lage two hours to cor­ral an un­co­op­er­a­tive llama named Ethel who es­caped from her pas­ture in ru­ral Colorado and wan­dered near some busy road­ways. The Boul­der County Sher­iff’s Of­fice tweeted a wanted poster with a photo of the way­ward an­i­mal and the hash­tag #Lla­maOnTheLoose. It’s an amended ver­sion of the one made fa­mous by a pair of Ethel’s elu­sive brethren, whose romp through a Phoenix-area neigh­bour­hood stole the spot­light last year. Sher­iff’s spokes­woman Car­rie Haver­field said Ethel’s owner called ask­ing for help to get the llama home af­ter she wan­dered into an­other pas­ture. An an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cer and a deputy tried to wran­gle Ethel, but she proved dif­fi­cult to cap­ture and more help had to be called in. At one point, passers-by formed a hu­man fence. She was ul­ti­mately herded back into her pas­ture.
