OREGON CITY, Ore. - Firefighters worked for hours to free a camel trapped in a sinkhole outside of Portland. A homeowner in Oregon City called 911 at 9:42 p.m. Tuesday night to report that a camel, named Moses, had fallen into a 6-8 ft. deep sink hole.
The residents told dispatchers they tried to get the large animal out themselves before calling, but were unsuccessful.

Skeptical Clackamas County firefighters and sheriffs deputies responded and found exactly what was reported, a 1,500 lb. camel stuck up to its shoulders in a muddy hole.
After nearly an hour of trying to help the animal out, they called for more resources.
Another fire crew responded. The animal was exhausted and no longer able to move.
