Alpacas die on northern Wisconsin farm

by

COLFAX, Wis (WSAU)   Authorities are trying to determine what started a weekend fire that killed dozens of alpacas at a farm near Colfax in northwest Wisconsin.

Around 65 alpacas were killed Saturday night and early yesterday at the Rising Sun Alpaca Farm, owned by Mike Schmit and Suzanna Lasee. They told WEAU-TV of Eau Claire that they’ve received lots of help – but they need food and water for the 45 animals that survived the blaze.

The Menomonie Fire Department and four others help put out the fire. Schmit lost a hand in a fireworks accident that was reported a week ago – and the couple cannot keep up with the farm financially anymore. Lasee told the T-V station they want to sell the alpacas – and if they can’t, they’d like to find another spot to place them.
