Forty llamas near Chase need a ride to a safer place.
The owners of the Llama Sanctuary, which is 17 kilometres from Chase at 2415 Chase Falkland Road, need to move the animals following an evacuation order at 3 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6.
In an interview Aug. 6 around noon, Lynne Milson said a large truck or trailer is needed. The animals are a range of ages and abilities; some are older and frail or lame, some are young. They also require a barn.
She said although people have offered places in Pritchard and Armstrong, neither is possible because of the wildfire situation.
Currently the animals are in paddocks, and there’s a small metal building nearby for any llamas requiring extra care.
Anyone who would like to help the Llama Sanctuary is asked to email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250-679-8121. A Facebook message is another possibility, Milson said, but response time may be slow.
