Cop Stunned As He Comes Face To Face With Alpaca After Pulling Car Over

Cop Stunned As He Comes Face To Face With Alpaca After Pulling Car Over

A Scottish cop was left stunned as he was greeted by an alpaca sitting inside a car while conducting a standard routine check.

The police officer spotted the black estate car while it was travelling along A84 road in Craigforth, Stirling, for an inspection, according to a statement posted by Forth Valley Police.

 They wrote on Twitter: “ForthValleyRP conducted a road check this morning at Craigforth.



OperationScrutinise. Various vehicles defects were discovered along with some unusual passengers. Some of those engaged were more appreciative of our Road Safety advice than others!”

Unsurprisingly, the unique encounter has users in hysterics, with one person writing: “​​Police stop makes the news but for a very different reason! I brought [up] an alpaca up like a baby - now she thinks I'm her mum.”

Another commented: “This is gold standard posting. Angry alpacas in local police news @angrypiln.”

A third person joked: “Fleeced to meet you!”

And another wrote: “Won’t that justify issue of spit masks?”

While another commented: “Sorry officer...alpaca in the boot next time….”

The news follows another alpaca making headlines, but for an entirely different reason.

Enter Annie, the gorgeous camelid mammal who thinks she’s a dog. Yes, that’s right.

BBC reports that Annie lives on Dannie Burns' farm, along with 75 other alpacas. 

However, Annie is adamant she is not a part of her herd, which must be the animal equivalent of, ‘I’m not like other girls’.

Dannie told the outlet he took her in around two years ago after her mother rejected her. 

Annie quickly became a part of the family; however, Dannie noticed she began acting more like a domesticated animal, roaming around the house and jumping in the car for road trips.

According to the farmer, she has no interest in running around in the field with the other alpacas. She even takes it a step further, constantly hanging around the family dogs and mimicking their behaviour.

"Every time we fed her, we put her out with the dogs and then she just copied them," he said.

"She wanders anywhere she wants on the farm, she has the freedom to roam where she likes.

"We just have to watch what she eats because she'll eat everything - polythene bags, sweets, toys, crisps, sandwiches.

"She tries to steal stuff out of customers' cars when they come to the farm. She's terrible, she really is. She has no boundaries."

Annie truly adds new meaning to the phrase, ‘A wolf in sheep's clothing.’
