Llama brings hugs to Portland protests

Llama provides hugs and nuzzles

to Black Lives Matter protestors

Six-year-old Ceasar has become a fixture

at Portland’s nightly demonstrations

extending his neck to greet activists

and law enforcement officers

(SOUNDBITE) (English) Larry Mccool, Owner Of Lama Ceasar, Saying:

"The Black Lives Matter movement - the whole idea of the concept is very important to us. Ceasar and I have participated in a lot of different protests and marches and the Black Lives Matter is one of the most important ones right now going on.”

Owner Larry says Ceasar's friendliness

has a calming effect

making him well suited for the nightly demonstrations
