Cowboy captures 2 out of the 3 escapee llamas in The Blue Mountains


Nearly a week after three llamas escaped their pen in the Town of the Blue Mountains, two have been returned home.

The trio wandered away from their farm on the 21st Sideroad on Friday and had been on the loose since.

Several volunteers, a cowboy on horseback and a drone, have aided in the search, and while there had been several sightings of Lluka, Llewis and Todd, corralling them to bring them home has proved to be the challenge.

On Thursday, the llamas' owner, Samantha McKay, confirmed Lluka and Todd had been captured by cowboy Jamie Hanley, adding both are in good health although somewhat stressed.

Llewis remains on the lam.

McKay said the llamas would never have left their home if their pasture gates hadn't accidentally been left open. Top Stories

Real quick — what did you have for lunch yesterday? Were you with anyone? Where were you? Can you picture the scene? The ability to remember things that happened to you in the past, especially to go back and recall little incidental details, is a hallmark of what psychologists call episodic memory — and new research indicates that it’s an ability humans may share with birds called Eurasian jays.
