Overzealous pet llama kills owner, 74

28 September 2012, 17:18

Delaware — US police say a woman has been knocked over by a pet llama that was trying to greet her and has died.

A report by the sheriff's office says former coroner Florence Lenahan, aged 74, apparently had a heart attack as she was being taken to a hospital.

The report says Lenahan called for help on Tuesday after a llama named Baby Doll slipped on wet grass while running to greet her and knocked her down, causing her to hit her head on concrete. It says there's no evidence the llama was acting maliciously.

Lenahan's family is working with the Delaware County Humane Society to find homes for animals on the property.
