    The men are charged with felony breaking and entering, felony larceny, second-degree trespassing and cruelty to animals. It was not clear if they have attorneys.

    Deputies said the men trespassed at a llama and alpaca farm in Monroe on Jan. 28.

    Borderline Farms president Tammy Limer said her half dozen llamas are there to protect her 60 alpacas, which she shears once a year for fur. Limer says the 10-year-old llama Mighty died protecting her herd.
