ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) – A llama that bolted from a live Nativity scene in eastern Ohio is home again.

Two-year-old Rusty was captured Friday after fleeing the night before from the Bible Methodist Church in Zanesville.

The church’s pastor tells the Zanesville Times Recorder that Rusty apparently got spooked, broke through a fence and disappeared.

Police had no luck tracking him down until he was spotted a day later in someone’s backyard. His owner and the pastor teamed up to corral him.

Rusty’s owner brought in another llama from the farm to take his place in the Nativity.
