A young camel named Scooby is back at home after going on a 90-minute jaunt that blocked traffic and provided an uncommon photo opportunity for motorists in Ohio.

The Blade reports that 1-year-old Scooby escaped from his fenced-in home in Springfield Township on Friday afternoon and began walking along township streets, prompting wide-eyed reaction.

A neighbour of the owner who was on her way home from work alerted the Lucas County Sheriff's Office. Owner Nabil Shaheen was then contacted and led Scooby safely home.

Shaheen said that he bought Scooby as a baby and is glad no one was hurt.

Residents of the town of Okanogan, Washington, got quite an air show courtesy of the US Navy.

Officials for Naval Air Station Whidbey Island say that one of their planes created sky writings in the shape of male genitals in the skies over the rural community on Thursday.

Many residents spotted the contrails in the clear blue skies above the central Washington town.

KREM-TV of Spokane, Washington, says officials for Whidbey Island issued a statement saying: "The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value, and we are holding the crew accountable."

The Federal Aviation Administration says it doesn't plan to take any action because the act did not pose a safety risk and the agency cannot police morality.
