apparently

llamas have banana-shaped ears and alpaca have straight ones! There were apparently llamas wandering on the Roaches which had escaped from a private zoo at Roaches Hall in the 1930s but they apparently died out! I am presuming therefore that these ones are owned, farmed or part of a tourist enterprise?

Yes these were being farmed

Yes these were being farmed and were not running wild.
