People Thought Llamas Were On The Loose Again And Life Was Perfect Until It Wasn't

Sorry internet, there are no escaped llamas today.

Posted on

February 26, 2015, is ingrained in the popular conscience as the day that two llamas led authorities on a chase through the streets of Sun City, Arizona — and in turn made a nation fall in love.

And all hell broke loose.

🚨It’s happening again.🚨https://t.co/3bNU3Gdnra

People lost their goddamn minds.

Llama llama llama llama RT @NBC12: 2 llamas on the loose in Chesterfield https://t.co/ssrdVnGtTF #LllamaDrama

They demanded a live stream of the llamas running towards freedom.

IF THERE ARE LLAMAS ON THE LOOSE AND THERE'S NO LIVE STREAM, WHY AM I EVEN ALIVE?

Calls went out for Chesterfield residents to live stream those llamas.

You live in Chesterfield. You have Periscope. Find the llamas. This is your moment. https://t.co/9m46SSLP6L

People were getting desperate.

Every minute that goes by is another minute that Im not seeing the llamas on the loose https://t.co/XonCJhWOc2

Some even blamed the llamas for bad timing.

I wish these llamas had been more considerate and escaped when a live stream was up and running. https://t.co/0q4pkbVkcJ

Others cheered them on.

I will never cheer for a Marvel or DC superhero the way I do for llamas racing for freedom.

It had been a week of animals escaping from the clutches of mankind.

People fondly remembered the Great Llama Escape of 2015.

Are llamas professional escape artists, and didn't this happen almost exactly a year ago?! #FreeTheLlamas https://t.co/YfqfaRkxhY

The world is trying to keep llamas down, but they ain't about that life https://t.co/2d5CxMAG8m

People were really rooting for them.

I am 1000% more into criminal llamas than Jared Leto's Joker

"We are not actively searching for any llamas," Chesterfield police told BuzzFeed News.

Police said they received a call at 9:30 a.m. local time about a "possible sighting" of two llamas on the loose. When police responded, "we did not find anything," a spokeswoman said. "The call was closed."

People were devastated.
