Eagan police are used to taking suspects into custody, but they usually have two legs. On Wednesday, officers corralled a couple with four legs: Two llamas out for a stroll.
Officers spotted the animals known for their soft wooly fleece on Skyline Drive near Pilot Knob Road. There was no word on what offense they committed. Maybe loitering?

The word from police spokesman Aaron Machtemes is that the llamas got loose and were just hanging out in the owner's front yard.
Police posed for a photo op, then told the owners the hoofed animals are not allowed in the city.
"We love the llamas, but you can't have them in that part of the city," Machtemes said.
Llama drama over. No need for hoofcuffs. Mom came and picked them up (: pic.twitter.com/zonE58dUbJ— Eagan Police (@EaganPolice) March 1, 2017
