One llama located;
another is still loose
A suspected case of Grand Theft Llama turned out to instead be a case of two llamas on the loose, one of which has since been located.
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office got a report that two llamas owned by Bill Redwood of Redwood Llamas came up missing from their pasture in Howardsville.
A small herd of llamas is kept there for use in backcountry trekking. Most of the llamas are in a pen, but the two renegades were kept tethered to the ground outside the pen.
Initially Redwood thought it was a case of llama rustling.
The llamas were last seen Friday, July 30. They were reported missing on Monday, Aug. 2.
Later on Monday, one of the llamas, named Jothee, was found up Maggie Gulch.
But the other, C.C., remains on the loose.
