Peru Vicuna Shearing Festival Photo Gallery

A Peruvian highland Indian takes part in the corralling of protected vicunas on the Andean plains of the Pampa Galeras National Reserve, in the Peruvian state of Ayacucho, Wednesday, June 24, 2015. The state-sponsored event, known as a “Chaccu,” occurs once a year so that Andean Indians can shear thousands of the wild animals, a delicate relative of llamas and alpacas, for their highly prized wool. The animals are then released. (AP Photo/Sebastian Castaneda)
