Oct. 18 (UPI) -- An "aggressive" spotted llama was found wandering loose in Colorado on Tuesday.

The City of Fort Collins Natural Areas shared a photo of the wayward llama, while warning residents to stay away from the loose animal.

"This llama lost its mama at Bobcat Ridge," the city said in a Facebook post Tuesday. "Please don't approach -- she is aggressive."

Karl Manderbach, the resident ranger at Bobcat Ridge, told the Coloradoan reports of the llama have increased recently since beginning in May or early June.

Two different parties reported the llama as aggressive and Manderbach said her attempts to lure the llama down from the hills were unsuccessful.

"I've gone up several times with different rangers and different staff to do that, and we can't get anywhere near it," she said. "It just wanders off."
