VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A couple of Solano County sheriff's deputies are one wayward llama's heroes after they saved it from traffic.
KTVU-TV reports deputies David Hollingsworth and Jordan Austin "found themselves having to think outside the box to coax this llama out of the roadway after it escaped from its pasture."
The llama went wayward Monday and the deputies corralled it without incident. Dashcam video shows the deputies putting a pink harness on the llama as four of its pals watched from the other side of the fence.
No tickets were issued. The llama received "verbal counseling," a post on the sheriff's Facebook page stated.
"The things they don’t teach you in the academy….llama wrangling. Deputies Hollingsworth and Austin found themselves having to think outside the box to coax this llama out of the roadway after it escaped from its pasture. We are happy to report this wayward llama was unharmed and reunited with his llama buddies after a verbal counseling. We sped the video up for your viewing pleasure."
