One llama still miss­ing af­ter 1 res­cued

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST -

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.

Love­land Fire Res­cue

Fire­fight­ers res­cued Speck­les, a llama, from the south side of the Big Thomp­son River near Wal­to­nia Road on Thurs­day.
