Last weekend, while on our way for our weekend shopping, we saw these camels being transported in a Toyota pick-up. As you can see, there are three of them and they seem to be well-behaved camels. I wonder how they were enticed to go into the back of the car and how they could fit in a such a tiny, cramped space.
So, this is how to transport camels in Saudi Arabia.
It’s actually my first time to see them transported like this. Most of the time, I see some of them being led along the highway but not in car. I’m just hoping that they’re moved to another camel farm and not sold to be butchered.
Do you know that car accidents in Saudi Arabia involving camels being killed on the road can lead you to be fined many thousand riyals? And a prison term is also possible.
