ACTON, Calif., Feb. 14 (UPI) -- A posse of firefighters and sheriff's deputies corralled a wayward camel that wandered into traffic in northern Los Angeles County Friday, officials said.

The camel apparently slipped away from a ranch in Acton, about 50 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, startling passing motorists.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the beast got aggressive and trapped some people in their vehicles, but no one was injured.

The double-humped camel was captured by emergency crews and was last seen in aerial television video footage being perp-walked back to its corral.
