Llama on the loose for almost a year rescued from Alabama septic tank ditch (al.com)

A llama that had been on the loose for nearly a year was rescued Sunday in north Alabama after becoming trapped in a septic tank ditch.

Alex, a Bolivar llama roaming Jackson County Road 96 for months, fell into the ditch and was trapped for about three hours, according to Southeast Llama Rescue, which took possession of Alex after he was rescued by Stevenson Volunteer Fire & Rescue firefighters Sunday.

“After several hours he was successfully, and safely, removed from the septic tank,” the fire department posted on its Facebook page Monday.

After reaching safety, Alex was taken to Auburn University’s veterinary school for evaluation.

2. I don't understand where he escaped from.

A zoo? Was he a pet?

4. Unclear, but I'm amazed that there's such a thing as Southeast Llama Rescue, which took him in. nt
