A llama was on the loose in Cloverdale Dec. 3.

The llama caused a bit of stir in the 6400-block of 172nd Street a couple of hours before the Surrey Santa Parade of Lights.

At about 3 p.m. the City of Surrey was notified a llama was seen rambling wild.

“Bylaw attended with RCMP and SPS, who had also received calls for the animal at large,” read a statement from the city provided by City of Surrey-Corporate Services.

“The llama was corralled in the back of a townhouse complex in the area and a professional wrangler was called in to capture/control the llama using the most humane methods,” the statement continued.

The wrangler ended up roping the animal and police officers helped get the llama into a trailer.

“Many residents in the area were grateful for the officers’ professionalism and efforts to take such care with the animal.”
