The Gallipolis Daily Tribune reports 5-year-old Josie Blazer, of Patriot, was surprised to find a six-month old alpaca Easter morning.

The alpaca that died had been given to Josie as a present following her battle with cancer.

The team at Four Season Veterinary Clinic was able to find a replacement alpaca for the young girl, with the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office helping to deliver the pet.

According to a Facebook post from the Gallia County Sheriff’s Office, “The offenders have been identified and will face charges to hold them accountable for their actions.”
