Animals: Camels

Shell brought this news story to my attention: "Australian woman killed by pet camel". The camel "knocked her to the ground then lay on top of her in what police suspect was mating behavior". The Sun, predictably, uses the headline "60-year-old humped to death". The victim, according to The Courier-Mail was a "jillaroo".

Back in April, a Florida woman was also killed by a pet camel. They were "being filmed by a local television station on Sunday when the camel kicked her and sat on her during a break in filming".

How long before Stephen Colbert replaces bears with camels on the Threatdown?
