Camel spotted on snowy road in Pennsylvania

Motorists were left perplexed when they spotted the animal on the road in the middle of a snow storm.
The peculiar scene was witnessed by several people including IT worker Megan Vogel who had been passing by when she noticed the camel standing by the roadside.

"The roads were horrible and people were stuck in the snow everywhere," she said. "Then I saw the camel and I had to do a double-take."

It turned out that the animal - whose name was Einstein - had been part of a traveling petting zoo that had been on its way to the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia when it got stuck due to the bad weather.

"Sadly Einstein the camel didn't make it to the Kimmel Center this evening," the Jewish Federation wrote on Twitter. "His ride got stuck in the weather and decided it was best for him to go home."

"Einstein is safe and happy to be headed home to Peaceable Kingdom Petting Zoo."

Funny because camelids first appeared in North america and migrated and diversified elsewhere. It's a ghost camel from the Pleistocene, lol !

Well, it seems the camel was somewhat smart, in that he stayed along the road. Although, with all the curvy, 2 lane treacherous roads in PA, which is probably 80% forest, the more likely story would be: Camel killed when struck by car. I'd venture to guess that a car wouldn't fare too well hitting such a massive animal either. Speaking of forest, had the camel wandered back into the woods, there's a good chance he'd be dead of exposure long before they found him. I'm sure he wasn't used to the PA winter temps. Not to mention, while they are called hills in PA, they are very close to being moun... [More]
