A llama escaped from its new home at Portland College yesterday and took itself on a jaunt around Holbeck Wood Estate, causing traffic chaos.
Police issued this statement, (really)
‘Magic the Llama was caught and was awaiting a vet for sedation, when he made a second bid for freedom and charged down the Marr Route leaving significant traffic disruption in his wake.
He was eventually alpaca’d in at Rushley Manor by an off duty special and 4 PCSOs, however the Llama refused to cooperate by resisting arrest and back up was called. Fortunately the folks at Moo-Vana Horse Rescue travelled from West Bridgford to help wrangle mischievous Magic.
It took nearly three and a half hours, and some very soggy staff, but the streets of Morton are now safe, with Magic the Llama currently servicing his sentence at an animal rescue farm.’
