SISTERS, OR -- “Bubbles” the camel has become quite the internet sensation since escaping his tether while visiting Sisters, just over a week ago. Deschutes County Sheriff's Sgt. William Bailey tells KBND News, "One of the deputies was dispatched to a found camel call in a pasture and the deputy was able to get a quick video clip; him and his partner. I put it out on social media and I didn’t expect how big it would get." He adds, "I’ve talked to a lot of the major news stations; it was featured on FOX News. So, it’s been quite a topic of conversation around the office, when it comes to this little brief camel video."

Bailey says the camel lives in Bend and was tied up in a Sisters front yard when it somehow managed to walk away. A neighbor later called to report a camel was in her pasture scaring horses. Another person in the area happened to have experiencing tethering a camel and Deputies quickly reunited “Bubbles” with its owner.
