A runaway camel injured a man and damaged a car Friday in Palmdale. Officials said the owner of the animal could face charges.
The daughter of the injured man said her father was hurt when the camel stomped him as he tried to corral the animal.
"My dad ... tried to catch it and it must have cornered him or something and it took off after him, bit him on the head and knocked him down and stomped on him," Skylar Dossenbach told CBS-TV Channel 2. "He crawled under something and the camel tried to pull him out from under it."
The L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control said in a statement to KTLA-TV Channel 5 that the "alleged owner is known not to be permitted to have the camel. The camel will be held as evidence and will be in the care of the Lancaster shelter."
