Nov. 20 (UPI) -- A camel named Scooby escaped from its owner's Ohio home and wandered loose through town for about an hour and a half, witnesses said.

Locals snapped photos of the 1-1/2-year-old camel as it wandered the streets of Springfield Township, in the Toledo area, on Friday afternoon and caused minor traffic delays.

A neighbor alerted the Lucas County Sheriff's Office, which dispatched deputies to the scene about 3 p.m.

Neighbors who recognized Scooby helped corral the camel and contacted owner Nabil Shaheen, 54, who was out of town at the time of the escape.

Shaheen returned to the township and walked Scooby home.

Shaheen said he does not know how Scooby managed to escape from his fenced-in property.
