A veterinarian evaluated it and the llama was handed over to a resident with expertise in the species who will foster it until police can find the owner.

Anyone with information is asked to call Granby Police at 860-844-5335.  

Exotic pet laws in Connecticut restrict residents from owning potentially dangerous animals such as bears, large cats and primates, but llamas -- known for spitting and being mean but not necessarily dangerous -- appear to be OK.
