BOULDER, Colo., May 4 (UPI) -- A Colorado sheriff's office said deputies spent more than an hour working to corral an "uncooperative llama" found wandering near a busy road.
The Boulder County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded Tuesday morning to an area near Niwot Road and Diagonal Highway on a report of a loose llama.
"You never know what the day will bring when you work at the Boulder County Sheriff's Office. Today it's a llama," the sheriff's office tweeted.
A follow-up tweet featured a "Wanted" poster with a photo of the llama and a caption reading, "Wanted: one uncooperative llama. #LlamaOnTheLoose."
The llama, identified by its owner as "Ethel," attempted to flee into an alfalfa field, the sheriff's office said.
"Update: We understand that the llama goes by the name Ethel. Not sure is the llama has other aliases," the department joked on Twitter.
