Wild Vicuna roam the high dry mountainous plateaus between Arequipa and Chivay. The were nearly hunted to extinction. Now the Peruvian govt protects them. They are not allowed to be owned ok hunted. Once a year the Local ranchers are allowed to round up local herds shear then and release them again to their natural habitat. No health exam, antibiotics, de-worming. And the round up is only allowed by human effort no vehicles [no worries there] just lots of people walking slowly surrounding and gathering them together.
