Police in Connecticut used social media to help reunite a missing llama with its owners.

Granby Police Department shared a photo Thursday morning of a large, brown llama with a purple leash on Twitter and called for the missing animal's owner to come forward.

"If you are missing this, please contact the Granby Police," the department said. "No, we are not kidding."

A local veterinarian inspected the llama and police later brought it to a resident familiar with fostering llamas, the Hartford Courant reported.

The department's public plea ultimately proved successful, as police announced about four hours later the owner had claimed the llama.

"The Llama Drama is over," police said. "Animal has been reunited with owner."
