Some residents in Lee, Mass. are concerned about some unexpected visitors in their town -- circus animals.

Pictures taken by a NewsChannel 13 viewer show a camel, zebra and alpaca chained up in a vacant lot on Route 102.

NewsChannel 13 checked with animal control, which says the circus owner's truck was stuck and in need of repair.

Their animal inspector is continuing to visit the site to make sure the animals are taken care of until the crew can get back on the road.
