This camel’s got the hump and holding up traffic on an Irish road (VIDEO)

This camel’s got the hump and holding up traffic on an Irish road (VIDEO)
While most of Ireland’s County Kerry were desperately trying to make the long journey to the capital to watch their team compete in the All-Ireland GAA semi-final, one camel had a cunning plan to stop fans from attending.

The All-Ireland is one of the biggest sporting events on the emerald isle. This year, the counties of Kerry and Mayo, in the south and west of the country, are battling to earn the right to compete in the final and become the modern-day kings of Ireland, at least in sporting terms.

However some members of the animal kingdom weren't too bothered with the travails of their human overlords and actively tried to stop eager Kerry fans from making the four hour drive to the capital, Dublin.

Sports enthusiast, and presumably Kerry fan Killian Burns, caught the moment a runaway circus camel, perhaps annoyed it didn’t get a coveted ticket to watch the big game, wandered onto the road, holding up traffic in the process.

Luckily for Kerry fans, the camel’s handler had the situation under control, taking the reins and bringing the ship of the desert, or in this case, ship of the fields, back to the relative safety of the ring, allowing anxious Kerry fans to continue their journey.
