Enlightened llama


The other day, while reading the Recorder Herald, a venerable community weekly established in Salmon, Idaho, 123 years ago, we came upon the curious story of a llama that had apparently lost weight to a fatal degree. Or, as the headline put it: "Llama killed by lightening." The animal was found on its back, "with its legs straight up in the air" and its wool "blown out 10 to 30 feet in every direction." That's one way to shear a llama.
