DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio sheriff's department says a woman has been struck by a pet llama that was trying to greet her and has died.

A report by the Delaware County Sheriff's Office says former coroner Florence Lanahan apparently had a heart attack as she was being taken to a hospital.

The report says Lanahan called for help Tuesday after a llama named Baby Doll slipped on wet grass while running to greet her and knocked her down, causing her to hit her head on concrete. It says there's no evidence the llama was acting maliciously.

Lanahan's family is working with the Delaware County Humane Society to find homes for animals on the property.
