CEDAR CREEK, Texas – A 6-foot-tall camel named Moses and his pint-size pony sidekick are missing from a Texas zoo.
Officials at Capital of Texas Zoo near Austin reported the theft of the kid-friendly creatures this week.
Zoo founder Michael Hicks says that the 3-year-old camel and the nearly quarter-century old pony, named Coco, are "best friends" and follow each other.
He says he and the staff are "heartbroken."
Hicks says he last saw both animals in a zoo pasture Tuesday night. They were gone in the morning.
He has offered a $400 reward for information leading to their safe return.
