Bounder in scrap touring Californian city (5)


I believe the answer is:


'bounder' is the definition.
(type of antelope - something which bounds around)

'scrap touring californian city' is the wordplay.
'scrap' becomes 'end' (synonyms).
'touring' indicates putting letters inside (touring can mean going round).
'californian city' becomes 'la'.
'end' enclosing 'la' is 'ELAND'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for eland that I've seen before include "Ruminant" , "game animal" , "South African antelope" , "African beast" , "Led an (anag) -- antelope" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
