Woman Is Sat On After Entering Camel Pen – Bits Animal’s Testicles To Escape
A woman who was sat on by a camel after crawling into it’s pen literally bit the animal’s testicles so that she could escape.
The woman, who has not been identified, entered the pen of Caspar the camel, a roadside attraction at a truck stop in Louisiana, so that she could grab her dog. For some reason that has not been revealed, the woman’s husband had been tossing treats for the dog under the camel’s fence. Unsurprisingly, this led to the dog running into the pen and becoming terrified of the camel.
The woman quickly reacted by crawling into the pen herself, and Caspar, a male dromedary, sat on her. The camel first chased the woman around his pen and then pinned her against the wall before he sat on her, which could not have been pleasant given the fact that Caspar weighs 600 pounds.
When the woman found herself being crushed, she desperately bit Caspar’s testicles in order to make her escape. She was rushed to the hospital afterwards, and it is not clear at this time if she suffered any injuries.
Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. said that the woman told him afterwards, “I bit his balls to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me.”
After police investigated, they found that the couple had provoked Caspar before he sat on the woman. Her husband had been pushing the camel and swatting it with his hat before the animal reacted.
“The camel did nothing wrong,” Hamilton said. “They [the couple] were aggressive. The camel was just doing its normal routine.”
“The camel has never been aggressive, the camel has never gotten out, never caused any issues — in fact, the husband and wife stated before that we’ve been here before and we’ve never had any problems,” the deputy continued.
The couple has since been cited for violating local leash laws and criminal trespassing.
“My only question to her husband was: ‘Why did you throw the doggy treat under the fence?’” Hamilton said. “And he just said, ‘I wasn’t thinking.’”
Pamela Bossier, the manager of the truck stop, said that there hadn’t been any attacks on visitors in the 30 years since the stop started keeping wild animals.
“First of all, they went and trespassed. After they trespassed then they proceed to antagonize something that big,” Bossier said.
“He’s really a gentle giant,” she added of Caspar, going on to say that the camel’s behavior was “instinct” because he had been provoked.
“Any animal you provoke, they’re going to strike back,” she said.
