Larry got his job at Mawr Country Park near Wrexham five years ago to protect the sheep and chickens from foxes and other predators. But rather than watching the sheep, he decided he needed more nosh and bit the sheep for their food.
Five years ago, foxes came down heavy on the livestock, killing them off and spreading foot and mouth disease. The senior parks & countryside officers came up with what they considered would be a more environmentally friendly way.
Choosing the llamas, which are from South America and live mainly on the higher grounds, seemed to be the answer to protect the sheep and stock during the nights. But Larry's days are over and will now lose his job to two other llamas.
