Camel Conundrum

A ranch hand calls out "come on, dude," as he tries to coax a camel into a trailer along Bailey Road in Concord, Calif. on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013. It was the second time Tuesday the 10-year-old camel named "Phil" escaped its enclosure. Earlier in the day citizens helped California Highway Patrol officers shepherd the camel off the roadway. Phil was clipped by a minivan after his second escape, but did not suffer any broken bones or other injuries. (AP Photo/The Contra Costa Times, Susan Tripp Pollard)
