LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

A dog is being quarantined after it attacked a llama in Lebanon on Tuesday.

Officials from the Northeastern CT Council of Governments (NECCOG) Animal Control, said the llama was attacked by a dog on Beaumont Highway.

Farm owners said a veterinarian was called after the llama suffered multiple puncture wounds to his ear and face. He needed some stitches as well.

Animal control officials said the dog is a few months overdue for a rabies vaccine, so it is being quarantined for about two weeks.

The dog will then be returned to the owner, animal control officials said.

The llama is expected to recover.
