MUSKEGON, Mich. (WFLA) – Guess what day it is? A petting zoo in Michigan celebrated an honorary hump day over the weekend when they took a camel on an adventure to a pet store.
On Sunday, Lewis Farms & Petting Zoo took a road trip to PetSmart in Muskegon and decided to bring their camel Jeffrey with them. Video posted to the petting zoo’s Facebook page shows Jeffrey walking through the parking lot and just barely making it through the automatic doors to get inside the store.
Jeffrey is then seen walking through the aisles of the pet store as employees and shoppers look on in awe.
In the video, officials with the petting zoo explain they had to take Jeffrey to a feed mill to get weighed because it’s the only place with a big enough scale to fit him. They said they needed his exact weight so they know what dosage to give him for medical treatments.
While they were out, they decided to swing by the PetSmart for a quick visit.
Jeffrey is one of the animals available for visitors to meet at the petting zoo in New Era. He’s celebrating his 12th birthday in August with an all-day party at the petting zoo.
