Law enforcement officers have one of the toughest jobs on the planet.
There are cases so weird, so strange than none of their training could prepare them for the situation.
That happened to some Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputies late Monday, Feb. 11.
Around 7 p.m., the PCSD was called out to a home near West Pima Mines Road in Green Valley. The reason -- two camels were running loose in the neighborhood.
Deputy James Allerton, a PCSD spokesman, said the camels were safely corralled and they are trying to return them to their owners.
This isn’t the first time Arizona authorities have had to deal with unusual suspects.
In July 2018, the Oro Valley Police Department detained an emu that was running loose in a neighborhood near North La Canada Drive and West Moore Road.
In November 2015, PCSD deputies wrangles four emus on the southwest side of Tucson. It happened near Drexel and Cardinal Avenue.
In February 2015, two llamas made national news when they hit the road and stopped traffic in the Phoenix area. The llamas, in the area for a therapy sessions at a retirement home, were safely captured.
At least the dromedaries and emu wren’t as annoying as the camel from the Geico commercial. Source-KOLD News 13
