Wandering Alpacas in Hope Ranch
Source: California Highway Patrol
It's the leader of the pack! Alpacas that is, we got a call of wandering alpacas exploring Hope Ranch.
Officer Youngblood and animal control stopped the fluffy group of animals. The animal control employee had knowledge that alpacas are pack animals. She related if you catch one the others will follow. As a team they gently placed a rope around one of the alpacas.
They started walking towards ranch properties and were contacted by the owner of the alpacas. No alapacas were hurt and everyone was happy. Great job Officer Youngblood and Santa Barbara County Animal Services.
