ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- Rep. Steve Doyle made a stop at Eagle Crest assisted living center in Onalaska Friday morning and it wasn't all about politics.
Doyle brought along two alpacas from his alpaca farm, which he and family raise as a hobby. Residents got to pet and feed the animals and Doyle answered questions about the alpacas. And he also of course fielded questions about the state government.
"During the summer when we're not in campaign mode, it's nice to just get out and get to talk to people in my other role which is state representative," Doyle said. "One of the things that I notice is even people who are mad about government, don't yell at me when they're holding a baby alpaca in their arms because there's nothing as soft and cuddly as an alpaca."
Doyle says it's important to reach out to those in assisted living homes because it can be difficult for the elderly to attend other listening sessions or political events.
