The case of the wry-faced llama

A Karl Llewellyn liked to make fun of 19th century contract law as being based on the arms' length horse trade between two strangers.  But two centuries later animal cases still come up with some frequency.

Like this Georgia case, in which a llama breeder was held liable for breach of warranty when the two animals it sold were found to be suffering from a condition called "wry face" (left).
