A camel, which was tied outside its owner’s house in the heat all day, killed him when the man finally remembered to untie the animal. The incident was reported in Barmer in Rajasthan on Saturday. It reportedly took 25 villagers six hours to calm the animal down. According to a report in The Times of India, the owner, Urjaram, had forgotten to untie his camel during the day, and suddenly remembered while he was entertaining guests at home.
When he went out to untie the camel, it attacked him, picking him up by the neck and throwing him in the ground. A villager told TOI that the camel chewed the owner’s body and severed his head in the process.
"The animal lifted him by the neck and threw him to the ground, chewed the body and severed the head," villager Thakara Ram said. Villagers revealed that the camel had attacked him before.
