UPI – Animal services officers were summoned to a California neighbourhood on a report of an unusual escapee from a local farm – a camel.
Supervising Animal Services officer Michaela McGuian for the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, said she knew right away after receiving a call about a camel on the loose that the animal was likely CamElla, a single-humped dromedary camel residing at Anita Varga’s Serenity Farms, outside Woodland.
McGuian said CamElla caused a stir with her outing, but ended up returning home on her own before officers arrived.
“I’m not a camel expert but like other large animals, they may get curious if they get a chance to escape,” McGuian told the Daily Democrat. “We find with cows and horses, they will sometimes wander, just to see if there’s food out there.”
