We went to the chalet today and saw this on the side of the road leading to Alkhiran/Alzour area. The camel was dead and the car was very badly damaged. I took many pictures but when I saw them on the laptop’s screen they were very graphic. Poor animal. Attorney Amy Witherite would have a field day with this one! I hope the driver isn’t badly hurt.

    ya3ni why do they keep things left on the road? they should toll the car and throw away that dead camel.

    I swear it wasn’t me!
    But I had a close encounter with a camel too on Highway 40 close to Camp Arifjan…
    I was awake for a little over 48 hours (really sad working times back then!!) and tought I am halucinating!! Then finally realised that I am racing with 160 towards a REAL camel … stupid thing stood on the middle of the road … I passed behind it so in case it would start to run it would not run into me… I was lucky!!! … and so was the camel! It didn’t move an inch!!
