Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Shocked drivers in a snowy Pennsylvania highway captured photos and video of an unusual animal at the side of the road -- a camel.
Witnesses reported spotting the camel Thursday evening next to a van and trailer pulled over at the side of northbound Route 309 in Souderton, Bucks County.
The camel mystery was solved when the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia revealed the animal, named Einstein, had been en route to an event at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.
The federation said the weather prevented the animal from making it on time.
"Sadly Einstein the camel didn't make it to the Kimmel Center this evening," the group tweeted. "His ride got stuck in the weather and decided it was best for him to go home. Thank you for everyone's concern. Einstein is safe and happy to be headed home to Peaceable Kingdom Petting Zoo."
