Veterinarians at Oregon State University's College of Veterinary Medicine are caring for 175 alpacas confiscated after their owners were charged with animal neglect. The owners, who once ran an alpaca business, filed for bankruptcy recently and couldn't care for the animals. "They're darn cute," OSU veterinarian Helen Diggs said. "But they're so thin, it makes you want to cry." Those that have been moved to the university are doing well, and the remainder will be transferred this week.
