Some news from Australia.
(Aug. 19) - An Australian woman was killed by a pet camel given to her as a 60th birthday present, police said Sunday.The animal was a gift from her the dead woman's husband and daughter.
The woman, whose name has not been released, was killed Saturday at her family sheep and cattle ranch near Mitchell, 350 miles west of the Queensland state capital Brisbane, state police Detective Senior Constable Craig Gregory said.
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.
Camel expert Chris Hill agreed with Gregory.
Without ever seeing a camel in person, I can still draw up a picture in my mind of what happened. What a way to go, my condolences to the family.
