Video from a chopper above via FOX 10 Phoenix showed the two animals running through the streets around lunch time-- and several people trying to chase after them. Apparently, chasing llamas is tougher than it looks.
Cars and golf carts stopped in their tracks as the animals galloped through the streets, down the sidewalks and through some yards. It's not clear if they got loose, or were anyone's pets.
The internet lit up with as news of the bizarre chase spread-- and one of the two llamas (the black one) was caught after about 15 minutes. But for the little white llama, the quest for freedom continued a little while longer. Both were eventually lassoed, but the #llamadrama lives on.
