Animals also need protection as wildfires continue to be a danger in California.

The California Highway Patrol trooper helped a Sonoma County animal services officer rescue a llama after its corral was damaged by wildfires. Together, they had to herd the animal back behinds its fenced enclosure. The duo then fixed the fire-damaged fence to ensure it doesn’t escape again.

The agency posted the photos of the ordeal to their Facebook page.  The animal services officer is seen holding a can to lure the llama. It’s unknown if there was anything inside the can.

The llama doesn’t appear to be in any immediate danger from the fire, but it probably got a little rattled from all the smoke nearby.
