PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — A strange sight was seen in Los Angeles traffic on Friday -- a camel created a ruckus when it got out of its enclosure and began chasing cars, authorities said.
Sheriff's Deputy John Cereoli said the camel was reported to have escaped from someone's property in the Acton area at approximately 8:30 a.m. local time Friday, and the incident lasted about a half hour.
The deputy said the camel was not injured.
Corrals and other animal enclosures are commonplace in the unincorporated high desert area north of Los Angeles.
