Police in Dumfries had to deal with an unusual incident in the early hours of Wednesday morning... when they were called to reports of a llama on the side of the road.
Officers managed to guide it from Edinburgh Road, back into a field at Dalscone Farm Fun Park.
Posting on Facebook, the force said helping the animal was "no prob-llama".
