PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — A camel created a ruckus in rural northern Los Angeles County when it got out of its enclosure and chased cars until it was rounded up.

Sheriff's Deputy John Cereoli says the camel was reported to have escaped from someone's property in the Acton area at 8:38 a.m. Friday and the incident lasted about a half hour.

The deputy says the camel was not injured.

Corrals and other animal enclosures are commonplace in the unincorporated high desert area north of Los Angeles.
