PALMDALE, Calif. -- A camel escaped from an enclosure in a Southern California high desert community Friday, stomped a 72-year-old man who tried to capture it, and chased other people before it calmed down and was corralled.
"My dad ... tried to catch it and it must have cornered him or something, and it took off after him, bit him on the head and knocked him down and stomped on him," Skylar Dossenbach told KCBS-TV. "He crawled under something and the camel tried to pull him out from under it."

Don’t try to corner a camel.
Nasty, unpredictable large mammals with numerous offensive and defensive capabilities.

Are camels related to moose?
Actually I think they’re like a big goat.
Thats what happens when you walk a mile for a camel.
I never heard of a goat biting, they usually butt.
I was stationed in Libya in1966. We were riding bicycles,when a camel started chasing us. Lance Armstrong had nothing on me that day.
Guess what day it is!! It’s A.S.S. Whoop day!!!
“I never heard of a goat biting,”
My sister in law had a mole on her shoulder and their goat bit her on it and it was melanoma which spread through her body and finally killed her.
Don’t be that guy. :-)
It always seemed to me one thing
about being in the military is it
leaves about everyone with a bunch
of pretty good stories.
Of course some can be pretty darn bad.
It is posts just like yours that became the camel’s last straw.
The Camel program at Camp Verde Texas. These are not those guys. ;o)
