How did they get there? And what were they plotting? Apparently, their owner brought them there for the summer – they love to heat themselves on the road as the pavement remains hot from the sun longer than unpaved ground. Fortunately, the warmth-loving llamas were moved before they could cause any harm for the participants. Sounds innocent enough but it wasn’t the first time that animals have tried to intervene with the race. In 2013 and 2007, dogs ran onto the course, causing multiple accidents and in 2010, sheep did just the same. Something’s definitely going on…
