The camel was being transported to an event outside Philadelphia when the vehicle carrying it got stuck. The animal's handler decided it was best to walk the camel back to its home, a petting zoo.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

The camel was being transported to an event when the vehicle carrying it was stuck.

It's MORNING EDITION.
