    BLAIRSTOWN — A woman in northern New Jersey saved one of her llamas from a bear attack. Lydia Chiappini was asleep in her Blairstown home when she awoke to the screams of her llama Gus being mauled. Chiappini told The Express-Times of Easton, Pa., the bear ran away after she first screamed at it. But Chiappini says the bruin returned while she called 911 and began chasing Gus. Chiappini told the newspaper she got between Gus and the bear and stood her ground. State troopers arrived and killed the bear. Chiappini is treating the llama with antibiotics. Chiappini says she broke her toe after she kicked the dead bear out of frustration.
