Death by camel

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

THE Amer­i­can owner of a wildlife park in the Mex­i­can re­sort of Tu­lum has died after be­ing kicked, bit­ten and sat on by a camel.

Res­cuers had to use a rope tied to a pick-up truck to pull the en­raged camel off the body.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, “The camel kicked and bit him prac­ti­cally to death, and when he was almost dead, he sat on him”.

“Be­tween the blows and the weight of the camel on top of him, he was as­phyx­i­ated.”

It was un­clear why the an­i­mal at­tacked the man, but some ver­sions sug­gest the camel was up­set at not get­ting a soft drink. One the­ory is that the owner would al­ways give the camel a Coca-Cola to drink, and ap­par­ently, that day he did not give one to the camel.

This may be a bit ex­treme but it could be some­thing to keep in mind next time you deny some­one some­thing to which they are ad­dicted to.
