Llamas Involved in Car Accident on I-75
Yesterday, we told you about a llama that escaped from his Tallahassee pen, running amok, hopping fences, and giving the cops a good run until they tasered his llama ass and got him back into his fence.
Now comes the news -- albeit a lot sadder than yesterday's news -- of llamas being involved in an accident on I-75.
On Monday afternoon, a pickup with a trailer carrying four llamas crashed into a bridge over the Peace River in Punta Gorda.
According to Charlotte County Fire-Rescue officials, the truck's trailer flipped onto its side after the crash.
One of the llamas was injured in the crash.
The other three appeared to be unharmed.
All four were taken to a local veterinarian hospital by Charlotte County Animal Control to be checked out.
Also, the driver of the pickup and trailer suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital.
It may appear that the llama apocalypse is upon us!
A Llamapocalypse, if you will.
