Nov. 25 (UPI) -- After nearly six months of wandering around Holly Township in Michigan, Dolly the llama was captured over the weekend and is finally on her way to a permanent home.

Kathy Kuzma had been trying to catch Dolly for quite a while and she was finally able to do it with the help of Lisa Davenport.


"Lisa is the one who came out here to save her," Kuzma said. "She was just real calm and knew exactly what to do.”

After they approached Dolly while she stood in a field, the two women were able to coax her into the barn where there were two horses.

"Lisa went in and talked to her and we hugged her and talked to her and loved her up," Kuzma said. "Then we put a leash on her where we tied her up."

Davenport will welcome Dolly at her farm, where the lucky llama will join a herd of a dozen goats, a dozen sheep and three other llamas.

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

Kuzma plans on visiting Dolly at her new home.


"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."
