Camel Roams Southern California Streets After Escaping Circus

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- A circus camel roamed the streets of a Southern California city after it escaped from its handlers.

The camel is part of the Ramos Bros. Circus and the incident started during some exercises Friday afternoon.

“Somebody dropped a wrench and one of them got scared,” said Douglas Ramos, co-owner of Ramos Bros. Circus.

The camel ran out of its tent and onto Glendale city streets.

“Literally there was 10 people running after this camel, it was craziness on the street, I heard kids yelling and screaming,” witness Diana Madison told ABC News Los Angeles station KABC.

The camel ran into a gas station and was lured back to the circus with a carrot, unharmed.

Ramos joked that maybe the camel just wanted to get in some Black Friday shopping.

“You know, we do this every day. This time I guess she just wanted to go shopping or something, I don’t know. Black Friday deals,” he said.

Camel Predicts Super Bowl Winner

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- If a clairvoyant camel is to be believed, the New York Giants will take home the Super Bowl trophy next Sunday.

Princess, a 25-year-old camel who lives at the Popcorn park Zoo in Lacey township, N.J., has accurately predicted the winners of five of the past six Super Bowls, the zoo’s general manager, John Bergmann, told ABC News.

Bergmann writes the name of one team on his right palm and the other on his left palm. He then places a graham cracker in each hand. Whichever cracker Princess nibbles is the winner.

“She chose without hesitation this year,” Bergmann said.

Princess has honed her prognosticating skills by predicting the outcome of New York Giants and New York Jets games since 2006, after a local radio station contacted Bergmann about getting an animal involved in the deejay’s weekly picks pool.

“Overall, she has actually had 88 right and 51 wrong,” Bergmann said. “That’s pretty good.”
