Camel in Offaly

Just when I was complaining about the lack of exotic species in Ireland ;)
Last Friday early morning commuters between Clara and Tullamore in the Irish Midlands were stunned by the sight of a camel calmly grazing along the roadside. Phone calls to the police ensued and they finally captured it and escorted it back to the visiting circus it had escaped from. This got quite a bit of coverage in the Irish papers and pictures. It was a bactrian camel.

Camels on the loose

The exact same thing happened with a circus in Cork a couple of months ago, the camel ended up stranded on the motorway.
