DURANGO (AP) - Two pack llamas that have been stranded for a month in the Weminuche Wilderness are still on the lam.

The llamas, named Dawson and Chai, were with two women who became lost for two cold nights northeast of Vallecito Reservoir.

The women were rescued by helicopter, but they had to set the llamas free to survive.

According to the Durango Herald, there have been several sightings, but the animals eluded capture.

The llamas can survive on bark, pine needles and vegetation.
