GROSSE TETE, Louisiana — By the grace of the Florida Gods, a Florida woman is recovering after she freed herself from a camel by chomping on the animals testicles at a Truck Stop in Louisiana.
The heroic incident happened after the unidentified woman entered the animal’s enclosure to retrieve her dog before the camel sat on her, reports said.
The Advocate reported: After the dog began interacting with the camel, the couple crawled in to get it, officials said. While inside, the camel sat on the woman and she bit the animal, a male dromedary, to get it off of her.
“She said, ‘I bit his balls to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me,’” Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. said.
The investigation found that the couple had provoked the camel before it sat on the woman. “The camel did nothing wrong,” Hamilton said. “They (the couple) were aggressive. The camel was just doing its normal routine.”
The truck stop, located 20 minutes outside of Baton Rouge, keeps a camel named Caspar and for many years controversially kept a tiger for visitors to see on-site. The couple, who weren’t identified, stopped at the truck stop to let the dog out.
Authorities didn’t find reasons to hold the truck stop liable for their injuries because the camel was enclosed and signs warning visitors to stay out are posted every 10 feet along the fence.
“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,” Hamilton said.
