(KCAL/KCBS/CNN) – A camel has been captured after running free for more than a hour in southern California.
Fire officials say the animal escaped its pen on Friday in Acton, CA.
Before it was caught, the camel knocked a man to the ground, sending him to the hospital with a gash in his head. The camel also damaged a nearby vehicle.
The animal has since been captured.
It's unclear if the owner, who officials say was keeping the camel illegally, will face charges.
