Camel spotted in snowstorm along Pennsylvania highway

PENNSYLVANIA -- Travelers in Pennsylvania were faced with quite an unexpected scene amidst the November snow on Thursday.

Video shared to Twitter by Megan Vogel shows a camel standing in the snow along the highway in the Philadelphia area.

"No big deal, just a camel on 309 in a snowstorm," Vogel tweeted.

Others on social media also reported seeing the camel while in their travels.

The warm-weather mammal named Einstein was actually headed to an event in Center City Philadelphia when his transport got stuck.

He was supposed to be a part of an event put on by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center.

He was a no-show, sadly, after his handler decided it was best to bring him back to his petting zoo.
