Jaisalmer, May 25: It's not just the human beings who are feeling the heat of the ruthless Indian summer. Last Saturday (May 21), a camel in Rajasthan attacked its owner and severed his head in anger for he had kept it out the entire day with its legs tied. A Times of India report said.
When Ujaram of Mangta village in Barmer district in the state's western part went to untie it after suddenly remembering amid entertaining his guests that he had kept it outside the entire day, the angry animal attacked him.
About 25 villagers took six hours to calm down the camel which reportedly lifted Ujaram by his neck and threw him on the ground. It chewed his body and severed the head.
The animal had attacked Ujaram in the past as well, said the villagers.
The extremely high temperature in parts of Rajasthan have made the desert ships jittery. A few days ago, a camel tried to get rid of a jawan riding on its back while running for the shade. Armymen stationed at the border with Pakistan are facing a tough time taming the camels in the adverse weather conditions.
