The animal broke free from its enclosure in the village of Challex which borders Geneva in the Pays de Gex on Saturday afternoon.

It was seen wandering on a busy highway over the weekend, causing drivers to brake and swerve to avoid the animal.

The llama was considered a danger to drivers and was shot and killed by a specialist animal control officer.
