CBS loves alpacas - they have had several reports on them through the years - here are a few videos that I think are worth a look.
December 1, 2008 -- Peggy Parks (Johnstown, PA) click here to view - this video is a little outdated with prices etc, and does talk about the "emu bubble", but does talk about the positives. (Originally on CBS evening news)
March 16, 2011 - Alpacas on CBS in Australia - an alpaca gets amorous behind the reporter - funny - click here to view. Talks about the different types and is quite amusing as well.
May 11, 2011 - Not really news (and wasn't on TV), but a cute video of a sleepy cria - click here to view - just darn cute
March 25, 2012 - Amber of Colorado and Bill and Lori from Harley Hill Alpacas in (Quakertown, PA) talks about alpacas for fun and profit - click here to view - this video is more up to date and talks about fiber, taxes, nutrition and thier "Muppet" like qualities. (Originally on CBS News Sunday Morning)
