Camel Wrestling in Turkey

We know about dog fighting, but camel wrestling?! It's a sport in Turkey! The camels wear muzzles, so it really is wrestling, not fighting. Today, a Turkish news article came out about a camel that, when wrestling, bit his owner's arm and head and sat on him, killing him (broke his bones). This camel was then sold to another breeder for over $10,000. The new owner's brother, after not hearing from the new owner, went to check on him. The camel had killed the new owner in the same way. The camel will now be put down. For the news article in Turkish, Go here! For a youtube link to a camel wrestling video, Go here!
