THERE’S NOTHING PEOPLE like more than live footage of a chase. However, it is usually a car chase, not a llama chase.

Twitter and the world over were captivated this evening by a rare occurrence of two escaped llamas.

According to CBS News the animals were part of a demonstration at the Carillons GenCare Lifestyle Facility in Arizona outside Phoenix.

However, somehow the mother and baby managed to get loose and ran through the streets of Sun City.

Everyone watched with bated breath as the two llamas dodged traffic and evaded multiple attempts at capture.

Under #llamawatch2015 Twitter went wild.

There was also much debate about what they are:

The llamas were safely caught and the world went about their business again. Sigh.
