Video: Runaway Camel Tours Glendale, Calif. 

Atula the camel escapes handlers before Ramos Bros. Circus show in Glendale, Calif.

If big-city life is the rat race, then why did a camel just run down a suburban Los Angeles street?

The one-humped wonder escaped from Ramos Bros. Circus the morning of Nov. 23 in Glendale, Calif. during routine exercises.

It took 10 handlers–and a carrot–to return the camel to its tent after they caught up with the animal about a block away at a local gas station.

“Literally there was 10 people running after this camel, it was craziness on the street, I heard kids yelling and screaming,” witness Diana Madison told TV station KABC.

Douglas Ramos, co-owner of the circus, told ABC News that someone dropped a wrench, spooking the camel.

“You know, we do this every day. This time I guess she just wanted to go shopping or something, I don’t know. Black Friday deals,” Ramos said.

After its jaunt to the Mobil station down Glendale Boulevard, Atula the camel performed that night as usual, the LA Times said.
