A 24-year old Santa Rosa man faces charges after allegedly punching a camel at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo.

Police say Christopher Allen's friend dared him Sunday to enter a restricted area of the park and punch the animal. Security guards caught him in the act, but Allen and his friends were able to escape and run from the park.

Vallejo police arrested Allen nearby on Highway 37. The camel was not injured in the attack.
