The actions of a camel held captive at a traveling circus in Norway have left little doubt about just what he thinks of his job.
Earlier this week, bactrian camel Ali somehow escaped his enclosure in the town of Stjørdal where his keepers had taken him and other animals to perform for the company Circus Arnardo. Passersby marveled at the unusual sight as Ali enjoyed a rare moment of freedom, settling in the center of a nearby roundabout to munch on some grass.
According to The Local.no, police were called out and his handlers were summoned to escort Ali back to the circus. At the time, no one was quite sure why the animal had wandered off, but it soon became clear: it was because he wanted to.
