It’s not every day that a visit to the petting zoo ends in tears and shrieks of terror.
But then again, we’re talking llamas here. These animals have a bit of a reputation for zigging when we expect them to zag, like the time a couple of llamas from an Arizona petting zoo decided to go on the, err, lam, eluding authorities for hours. There was also the time a llama was seen nonchalantly strolling across a North Carolina golf course.
But in the video below, uploaded to YouTube in March 2017, the llamas aren’t going anywhere. In fact, they won’t leave this family alone.
It all seems to start innocently enough. A family with two small boys appears to be feeding the animals from their car at the Tennessee Safari Park.
And then the words you never want to hear while visiting llamas: “Honey, it’s in the car.”
Well, not exactly inside the car. But there’s just enough llama — namely, his gargantuan head — to send the boy in the back seat into hysterics.
These llamas come in peace — they just want those tasty kibbles in the bucket.
And sure enough, when the boy in the back seat finally releases his grip on the bucket of food, the llama moves on. At the end, the boy has learned a powerful lesson in human-llama relations: Just give them what they want.
