Man Goes Shopping – With His Pet Camel

This man didn’t get the hump when he visited his local pet shop – after taking his CAMEL.

Jeffrey the 1,400 pound camel, aged 11, cruised the aisles of PetSmart in Muskegon, Michigan alongside his owner Scott Lewis.

Scott, 50, lives with Jeffrey at the nearby Lewis Farms & Petting Zoo, but he wanted to take his camel on a trip, to get him used to travelling in a trailer.

“Jeffrey really loved his little shopping expedition, he just adores meeting new people he’s very social,” said Jenny Ferels, Brand Ambassador for the Lewis Farms & Petting Zoo, who shot the video.

“We’ve had Jeffrey since he was a baby, he’s very gentle and sweet.

“He’s a ham. We hold a birthday party for him every year, we hire a band and he gets to eat the first slice of cake, he gets icing all over his lips.”

PetSmart’s policy regulations include a list of animals owners are permitted bring into their stores – but camels are not on the list.

“Usually it’s just cats and dogs etc,” said Jenny.

“But in the fine print there’s an option to make exceptions at the management’s discretion, so luckily they made an exception for our Jeffrey.”
