Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Soccer fans on their way to a game in Ireland found themselves delayed by an unusual traffic hazard -- an escaped circus camel standing in the middle of the road.

A video posted to Twitter by Killian Burns shows the vehicle approach a "traffic jam" in Castlegregory, County Kerry, and the occupants quickly notice the cause of the stopped cars is a camel standing in the road.

"There isn't a man woman, child or animal left in Kerry for this #KerryvMayo match except of course for this camel," Burns wrote.

The video shows a person, believed to be a worker with Courtneys DareDevil Circus, which was performing in town during the weekend, running up to the camel and leading it off the road.
