Update: Missing Alpaca Has Died

An alpaca missing from a Fort Calhoun family's pasture since Tuesday was found Thursday night, but died on Friday.

Summer, the alpaca, was found on a neighbor's property stuck in a crevasse. The animal was freed and checked by a vet. Summer suffered some stress injuries.

The family said alpacas travel in a herd and Summer would not normally wander off. The Washington County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the alpaca's disappearance.

The seven-year-old Summer is the mother of a three-month-old.
