Three llamas were on the loose for less than an hour Friday morning in rural Baltimore County, police said.
The animals escaped from their farm around 7:20 a.m. and ran free for a little while before two officers collared them with the help of a dog from a neighboring farm.
“The llamas did not stray too far from home,” said Natalie Litofsky, a spokeswoman for Baltimore County police. “It’s not a heavily traveled area. It’s mostly just farms.”

Animal escapes aren’t uncommon in the llamas’ Long Green area of the county, Litofsky said. They briefly crossed a quiet road but otherwise caused little commotion — unlike two of their Arizona cousins, which captivated social media one afternoon in February.
That duo’s escape in Sun City, Ariz., was caught on tape, inspiring GIFs and memes for days.
