Camel slipped and fell off cliff (Sabq)

A pregnant camel remained stuck on a hilltop unable to move after it fell and broke its leg and the civil defence said they could not save it.

The camel was herding with other camels owned by local farmer Saleh Al Nadwi when it slipped and fell off a cliff on the mountain near the Western town of Makkah.

Civil defence who reached the place told its owner they could not save the camel because of the difficult nature of the area.

“Nadwi is appealing for help to save his camel, which has been stuck on the mountain since Tuesday…Nadwi, who is a poet, composed a poem in sympathy with his camel and relatives said he could not step weeping,” Sabq daily said.
