A circus camel made a break for freedom on the streets of Glendale yesterday. Atula the camel was doing exercises for The Ramos Bros. circus from Mexico, when she heard someone drop a wrench and decided to make a run for it.

She crossed several lanes of traffic with her handlers in hot pursuit, according to ABC 7. She made it about a block when her trainers were able to lure her back with a carrot. Diana Madison of Hollyscoop.com happened to catch the chase on tape.

Atula reportedly performed without any other problems for the show later that night.
