COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Boone County authorities are looking for two stolen camels.
The double-hump male camels were stolen along with two steers from a farm in Columbia. They were last seen Monday morning.
The animals’ owner says someone likely lured the animals into a trailer. He says the four animals are worth a total of about $20,000.
The male camels are about 3 years old, tan and 9-feet tall. The two 900-pound Black Angus steer have tags on their right ears with the numbers 96 and 97.
Investigators say it’s unclear if the camels had microchips or tags.
