Fugitive llamas led back to Ky. farm

Two llamas on the lam in Louisville, Ky., have been safely herded and returned to their home, their owner says.

The llamas' owner, Dale Hill of the Louisville Llama Farm, surmised beer bottles found near the animals' barn indicated some party animals decided to free the beasts, which are raised for their wool, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal reported Saturday.

Hill said the 10 female llamas escaped, but only two -- Felicity and Prism -- wandered off the property. Prism was found along a road not far from the farm but Felicity was found by police and animal services blocks away. A family reportedly retrieved her and walked her back to the farm, located near the Louisville Zoo.

The one who had seen the most of the city was Felicity, Hill told The Courier-Journal. She really had a good night out.
