SAHUARITA, Ariz. (AP) — Two camels in southern Arizona are back home after going for an impromptu trek in the desert.

Pima County sheriff's officials said authorities Tuesday found the owners of the runaway camels.

Deputies were called to a residence in the town of Sahuarita on Monday night and found the camels roaming a front yard. They were able to corral the animals away from the property.

Deputies say it's not unusual to get calls from time to time about livestock on the loose.
