Crimes against, errrr, Llamamanity!

Somebody contact Kofi Anan!

AUSTIN, Minn. - A hunter went into the cornfields of southern Minnesota on the first day of deer season and came out with a woolly South American pack animal and the prospect of criminal charges.

The Austin Police Department reported that a hunter saw a deer run into a cornfield about 10 a.m. Saturday. Moments later another animal ran out, the hunter fired and the llama was hit.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources enforcement division was investigating the shooting, and a criminal charge against the hunter was expected.

The hunter was hunting on property with permission of the owner. The llama was on the property of its owner, adjacent to the hunting area, when it was shot.

You know, we last saw Jeff at Beautiful Atrocities picking up tix to Minneapolis with a large package he claimed was new shower curtain rods under his arm....

I saw that story earlier. I'm so glad you guys are all right! The llama wasn't a relative, was it?

We have a Llama down!

I assure you, it wasn't me. It is common knowledge that you don't shoot a Llama unless you're ready to take on the whole Llama family.
