One llama still missing after 1 rescued
Bravado, the brown llama who went missing in Loveland after he and a fellow llama were spooked by a bear Wednesday, was still on the lam Saturday.
The llama’s owner, Gary Bien, has been tracking Bravado without luck so far, said Darren Christiansen, a manager at Kirk’s Fly Shop that is owned by Bien. The two llamas live on the shop’s land in Big Thompson Canyon in Estes Park.
While The Denver Post was on the phone with Christiansen on Saturday afternoon, a call came in from someone who spotted a brown llama. With a new sense of urgency, Christiansen apologized but said he had to go and hung up the phone to chase the latest tip.
Speckle, the other llama who took off, has already been found, as initially reported by the Loveland Reporter-herald.
Speckle ran in the opposite direction from Bravado. He found himself stranded on the south side of the Big Thompson River. Rescuers from Loveland and Estes Park used ropes to swim across the river and guide Speckle safely back.
Firefighters rescued Speckles, a llama, from the south side of the Big Thompson River near Waltonia Road on Thursday.
