thoughts on alpacas (again)

So, I haven't talked to Achaosofkittens about this yet - he only got sideswiped by an e-mail cc that he probably hasn't read yet. But I'm posting because maybe someone else out there can help...

Fiber friends of mine who raise alpacas (remember my handspun shawl from Black Streaker?) sold their farm and some of their animals, and moved out of state. One of the guys who bought some of the animals has not been caring for them. He has neglected them in all ways; he let them get thin and sick. In fact, Black Streaker is dead from intestinal parasites - a solveable problem.

The previous owners heard about this and have asked for help getting five gelded males off of that farm. I talked to the lady about it. I admitted that we didn't do so well last time with Marco. But I'm willing to try again if it means getting a thin, unhappy alpaca out of a bad situation.

If anyone else in this area wants a rescue-alpaca, please let me know.

If there's a possibility of transport, I might know someone up here. Should I forward?

I doubt that anyone would transport them. The lady coordinating rescue is WAY out of state...

I've mentioned this predicament to a few people and some are asking if there is any way they can help other than taking possession of an alpaca. Has any progress been made in securing the animals from this... person?

Thank you and your friends very much for the good thoughts! Fortunately, all of the alpacas are now off of that farm.
