According to Dave Irwin of theCity of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department, the owner of the lost llama of Loveland --that llama who spent the last three months wandering around Mahoney Park and the Bobcat Ridge Natural Area northwest of Loveland--- was found.
One would naturally conclude that the owner was relieved to learn the llama is still alive and eager to bring her home again however this was not the case.
Irwin was unwilling to detail why the owner wouldn't take the llama back during our brief phone conversation ---he seemed, in fact, reluctant to say anything that could disclose the identity of the llama's original owner--- but he shared the good news that a local area landowner had informed him who llama's original owner was and was also helping to coordinate with other area llama breeders and other nearby landowners so the llama will soon have a home again.
The City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department still has the challenge of capturing and moving the llama --which been referred to by other media as a "bad tempered llama"--- ahead of them. It is not an enviable task, however with the community and park authorities working together it seems that this is doable.
This news clip from a few years ago shows just how difficult capturing llamas can be. And apparently llamas really are a thing in Colorado's mountaineering and adventure resort industry as they are assist in hauling gear and bags on rigorous mountaineering trips.
It is not yet known how useful they would be on surveillance assignments but if you decide you'd like to find out, please let us know.
