TWO CAMELS ESCAPE ENCLOSURE AT OHIO'S CEDAR POINT AMUSEMENT PARK, NO INJURIES

Amusement parks usually provide thrills to guests. On Tuesday, two camels at the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio did their part, escaping their enclosure and romping in the pedestrian area of the petting zoo.

One camel is shown jumping a few times close to some of the park guests. Unsure of what the animals might do, some park patrons started climbing into the adjacent animal pens.

“That dude almost died,” an adult man says off-camera in the video. A child delightedly shouts, “The camels are out!”

Tony Clark, a spokesperson for the amusement park, told media outlets that no attendees were hurt during the situation.

“[The camels] decided to take an unplanned stroll just outside their home at The Barnyard, our ‘petting zoo' area on the Frontier Trail, but were quickly returned,” he said to 3News

On social media, some had fun with the escape.

“Looks like he’s pregaming for HUMP DAY!” one Facebook user joked.

Despite the delight, camels can be dangerous and can inflict serious injuries by kicking, biting, and stomping. In rutting season, male camels can be aggressive.
