Two loose llamas in Arizona recently became a trending topic on Twitter worldwide.
The chase began after a 911 call came in to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office just before noon, reporting that a black llama and a white llama had escaped from an assisted living facility, the CNN reported.

The runaway llamas were eventually lassoed and rounded-up by the authorities. In total, the chase lasted a little more than half an hour.
While everyone is talking about the dress, no one talks about the llamas that were in the loose. #vote5sos #kca pic.twitter.com/5NdbqN7qBU
