    Llama on the loose on Colorado's Pikes Peak

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. A llama is loose near the summit of Colorado's Pikes Peak, and a rescue group says it's probably a domesticated escapee that has little chance of surviving in the wild.

    The llama was first reported about a month ago and has been ranging between the 13,000-foot level and the 14,110-foot summit. It has ventured to within 30 feet of a cog railway that runs to the top.

    Owner of Pike's Peak llama located

    The mystery behind a baby llama roaming the rocky slopes of Pikes Peak for more than a month has been solved.

    The little llama, dubbed Pikes Peak's Homer by his temporary caretaker Tracy Ducharme, was traumatized and ran off on Aug. 14 when his mom was killed by a mountain lion. His owner, Theresa Kabot, told Ducharme that they searched the ranch, at the southern foot of Pikes Peak, but figured he had been killed as well when they didn't find him.

    LOL That just might be the most annoying song I've ever heard! It was like Dr. Seuss on LSD. But the llamas sure are cute.

    Yes. Snipped
    "Instead, the little guy was hanging out on Pikes Peak, where he charmed passengers on the cog railway and tried unsuccessfully to make friends with a herd of bighorn sheep. When Ducharme, a llama owner from Black Forest, heard his story, she headed up the mountain Friday to rescue him. She brought her llama along, and Homer immediately ran up to them."
