Should have gone to Spec­savers!

OPTICIANS could not be­lieve their eyes when they spot­ted their next cus­tomer – this cu­ri­ous al­paca.

The woolly crea­ture, thought to have wan­dered off a pri­vate lot nearby, spent half an hour qui­etly brows­ing lenses in the shop in France.

Em­ploy­ees closed the doors to stop it flee­ing be­fore call­ing the po­lice.

While they ini­tially thought it had es­caped from a nearby cir­cus, au­thor­i­ties even­tu­ally found the pri­vate owner, who came to pick up the way­ward an­i­mal shortly af­ter­wards.

Staff at Les Op­ti­ciens Mu­tu­al­istes, in Hen­nebont, Brit­tany, first saw the al­paca wan­der­ing around out­side.

One em­ployee said: “We saw him walk past the shop, he stopped in front of the au­to­matic doors that opened, and he walked in very qui­etly.

“He was not at all ag­gres­sive, he was just do­ing his thing.”
