Llamas in the news: Dolly, Serge and a brave mama

USA TODAY - The heroic acts of cats and dogs appear in the news often. But who's got love for the llamas?

These pack animals, which are related to camels, are making their own epic appearances and deserve a piece of the animal spotlight.

So here goes, our first installation of llamas in the news:

A home for Dolly? Temperatures are dropping in Michigan, and Dolly the llama needs a home. She has been roaming around a Holly Township neighborhood, and a concerned couple is very worried that Dolly could end up as prey.

Just like a circus: Remember Serge the llama? He had a crazy night out when a group of drunk men kidnapped him on Oct. 31. Serge appeared as theguest of honoron Nov. 10 at a Ligue 1 game at Chaban-Delmas stadium in Bordeaux, France. The llama even posed with the club's president.
