PASO ROBLES, CA (NBC) — A llama was on the lam in Paso Robles, California Tuesday, and apparently all because she was lonely.
Camille drew attention from the Paso Robles police and local citizens as she took to the streets Tuesday.
Winding several miles from the north end of town to about mid-town local do-gooders were able to stop her from running down busy Spring Street which was packed with people and cars at midday.
Not only was the llama captured, but it happened to be caught right in front of Paul Lamas home (one 'l', no relation) who said the chances of that were about 0%.
Camille's owner Jackie Sauer says dogs recently killed Camille's companions and she likely got out because she was forlorn.
Sauer says the chase has motivated her to find a companion for the 2-year old llama soon.
