A woman had to get creative in order to escape from a camel at a Louisiana truck stop. The woman was chasing her dog when she followed it into the camel’s enclosure.  The camel, named Caspar, became agitated and pinned the woman against a wall and sat on her. Desperate to escape, she bit the camel’s testicles, which allowed her to run away.  She was later taken to a hospital with undisclosed injuries.

But Caspar’s owners are blaming the woman, saying she was pushing and swatting the camel, and was throwing dog treats into the enclosure when the dog ran in.  They say Caspar is friendly and plays with smaller animals like goats all the time.

What’s the closest you’ve ever gotten to a camel?  Do you blame the woman for getting into the situation?
