HOLLY TOWNSHIP, Mich., Nov. 25 (UPI) -- A Michigan woman said the llama she dubbed Dolly has been captured after nearly six months on the loose in the area around her property.

Kathy Kuzma of Holly Township said she does not know the origins of the llama, but it has been wandering around her neighborhood for about six months and she has received dozens of inquiries from people seeking to adopt the animal, but they all wanted her to catch Dolly herself, the Flint Journal reported Monday.

Kuzma said Lisa Davenport, who owns three llamas and other animals in Tyrone Township, came to visit Saturday with a plan to capture the loose llama.

Davenport and Kuzma were able to lure Dolly into a barn and tie a lead around her harness.

"She [Davenport] was just real calm and knew exactly what to do," Kuzma said.

Davenport said Dolly will join her herd of three llamas.

"I'm happy to do it," Davenport said. "There's always room for one more."

Kuzma has an open invitation to visit Dolly whenever she wants.

"I'm so darned happy," Kuzma said. "Now I can relax, I'm so happy I was able to rescue this animal. I can go visit her whenever I want."
