Camel back after Christmas Eve escape

THURMONT, Md. (AP), Dec 28 _ A 4-year-old camel named Lancelot is back where he belongs after an escape from a Thurmont corral on Christmas Eve.

After getting the call about the camel on the loose, two Thurmont police officers and two Frederick County sheriff's deputies found Lancelot eating from a tree. When he saw the officers, he ran into a field. After he was cornered, an officer called an uncle with a rodeo background to bring a lasso.

Lancelot was easily roped was soothed with cookies. He was then led back to his corral at Interactive Wildlife, a company that provides animals for shows around the East Coast.

Trainer Calin Hahn believes Lancelot undid a latch in search of his camel buddies, who were participating in a live nativity display in Gettysburg, Pa.
