LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Nez Perce County authorities says a mischievous llama caught roaming neighborhoods last month has escaped her pen at a Lewiston livestock yard and is on the loose once again.

The llama evaded northern Idaho authorities for about a week this summer and was often spotted helping herself to neighborhood gardens and shrubbery. She was finally captured in late July.

Lt. Bill Madison says the "rather determined creature" managed to escape the livestock yard after scrambling over a stall with 6-foot tall wooden rails and making a run for the nearby hills.

The sheriff's department has yet to determine if the pack animal has an owner.
