When you throw a party as big and elaborate as Meek Mill's, it's bound to get shut down. Police busted the rapper's post-Grammys party in the Bel Air Estates after they received reports of more than 1,000 people celebrating into the wee hours of the morning.

Guests like Diddy, Lil Wayne Drake, Nicki Minaj were roaming the grounds of Mill's rented mansion near Mulholland Drive and Antelo Place that also had a real-life camel and lion on the estate. For real.

Authorities closed down the bash after there were reports folks were still celebrating until 5 a.m., according to TMZ and CBS Los Angeles. Although guests were shuttled up to the party, there were a number of guests illegally parked on Mulholland Drive. LAPD and CHP towed away those vehicles, and when the party was busted, hundreds were walking down the streets to find a way home.

Some of the guests though seemed to have a good time. One guy Instagrammed this snapshot and captioned it, "#MeekMill really brought a freaking camel to his mansion party. A FREAKING CAMEL!!! #GrammyWeekend #MMG"

One of the "fire eaters" she was talking about:

But seriously, lion in a cage?
