Two Camels Stolen from Columbia Farm

Mar 25, 2015

Boone County authorities are looking for two stolen camels. 

The double-hump male camels were stolen along with two steers from a farm in Columbia.

They were last seen Monday morning. The animals' owner says someone likely lured the animals into a trailer. He says the four animals are worth a total of about $20,000. The male camels are about 3 years old, tan and 9-feet tall.

The two 900-pound Black Angus steer have tags on their right ears with the numbers 96 and 97. Investigators say it's unclear if the camels had microchips or tags
