When animals attack, Part 928

Pet Camel Kills Australian Woman

An Australian woman was killed by a pet camel given to her as a 60th birthday present, police said Sunday.

...The 10-month-old male - weighing about 330 pounds - had knocked her to the ground then lay on top of her in what police suspect was mating behavior, Gregory said.

...The woman was given the hand-reared camel in March as a birthday present from her husband and daughter.

The fate of the camel is not known.

What a way to go!
