Nothing unusual there.

Camel chasing traditionally carried the death penalty in Arabia right back to the days of Mohammed. Nice to see it get more up to date then having a horde shouting silly names waving swords & throwing rocks at the camel chasers.

As to the above post, it relates in large part to camels carrying syphilis which was initially a disease of mariners returning from Central & South America with lots of loot & a few hitchikers after rumpy pumpy with local native americans prior to return over the Spanish main. How syphilis passed from Human to camel is open to some speculation but the above post is well over 50% probable. In the past also it ALSO carried the death penalty... but in most cases by the camel chaser turning into an icky mess due to absence of penicillin.
