Three llamas escaped from a truck and roamed loose on a motorway.



Oregon State Police explained how a man had been hauling the animals down a road when the trio - led by the 'mama llama' -escaped with the truck going at low speed.

Officer Levi Macy said: "The owner ran back and gave me the rope to hook to mama llama's harness.

"Mama llama refused to get up as you could see by her displeased facial expression, so I told him that I would llama sit, while he wrangled up the others."

The force added: "Llama wrangling may not be a required skill, but here in Oregon it sure comes in handy."
