Llamas are livestock, too

HELENA, Mont. (AP)--A plan moving forward in the Legislature calls for reimbursing people whose llamas are killed by wolves.

The House unanimously endorsed the idea, which would recast state law to include llamas among animals classified as livestock.

Supporters say llamas incorrectly were left out of 2007 legislation that established a system to reimburse livestock owners for deaths caused by wolves. The Livestock Loss Mitigation Board runs that plan.

State officials estimate wolves could kill eight Montana llamas a year. Compensation would run about $16,000 a year.

If the payment proposal receives final approval in the House, it will move to the Senate.
