Ethel the llama is on the loose in Colorado, what do we do?!

Well, she was on the loose for a couple hours Tuesday, May 3.

According to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Ethel’s owner called Tuesday after the wayward llama decided to visit another pasture near the town of Niwot.

An animal control officer was dispatched, but it seems Ethel was enjoying her day out on the loose. More help was called in to convince Ethel to go home.
